Accidents as a pedestrian

You are entitled to compensation if you are caused injury by the negligence of a road user. Like cyclists and motorcyclists, injuries are often more serious quite simply because of the lack of protection.

We have dealt with pedestrians hit on pelican crossings, pavements, parks, public walkways and even a cemetery. What is important is to choose Smooth Law to deal with the consequences. As a client you are our priority. Visits to home and hospital can be arranged, It only takes a call or an email or even a text. Last year approx. 25,000 pedestrians were involved in reported accidents. You are also entitled to compensation if you are struck by an uninsured or untraced motorist and even if you are to blame in part for the accident.

Smooth Top Tip

Remember you don’t need to know the identity of the vehicle or driver to be able to claim as a pedestrian but it is essential that the incident is reported to the Police as soon as practicably possible. In reality this needs to be as soon as possible if not immediately. You may be refused compensation if reporting the incident has been delayed.
