SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
A pedestrian accident is any type of road traffic accident involving a pedestrian. This can range from a minor accident, such as being knocked over by a passing vehicle, to a more serious accident, such as a collision with a vehicle.
A pedestrian accident compensation claim is a legal process in which an individual seeks compensation for an injury sustained in a pedestrian accident. The individual must provide evidence to support their claim and show that their injury was caused by the actions or inactions of another party.
At Forbes Solicitors, we are fully aware of the catastrophic consequences that can arise from accidents involving pedestrians. Vehicles driving at any speed can cause severe harm, and a momentary lapse in judgment can cause serious injuries or even death. Even relatively minor accidents can lead to extended time off work with reduced or no income. So, if you have been in a pedestrian-car accident then contact our expert pedestrian injury lawyers today on 0800 689 0973.
Accidents involving pedestrians also require a specialist and in-depth knowledge of the law. As it stands, vehicle drivers are duty-bound to consider pedestrian safety and to drive in a manner which takes into account pedestrians', often, unpredictable behaviour, as a result of which accident claims for pedestrian accidents are often skewed in the pedestrian's favour. Pedestrians have successfully obtained pedestrian car accident compensation when they have stepped out from behind parked cars, crossed the road in traffic, or even fallen into the road unexpectedly, and the Courts have consistently shown that they are willing to impose a very high duty of care on any vehicle driver.
