Accidents involving pedestrians claims

Have you been injured in a road accident as a pedestrian? If you have been hit by another vehicle, you have the right to claim damages for physical injury. Drivers are required to pay due attention and drive the vehicle safely. This obligation is significantly increased in specific areas, such as schools or city centres. Even in situations where pedestrians have not been careful and invaded the oncoming vehicle, pedestrians may still be entitled to compensation for physical injury. In such situations, the court may decide that both parties are responsible for the accident, so pedestrians still may be entitled to compensation. Our law firm has already handled thousands of cases of road accident victims.

You can put your trust in solicitors with experience in dealing with this type of case.

Am I eligible to make a claim if I was involved in an accident as a pedestrian?

Pedestrians are vulnerable users of the road and other users, especially the drivers of motor vehicles are required to take reasonable care, in particular when driving in urban areas. Special care is needed near to junctions, crossings, schools, hospitals, residential areas and shopping areas.

Drivers should ensure that they only proceed when they can see clearly. In winter, drivers must ensure that they have cleared their screen of mist, snow or ice which might block their view of pedestrians.

When passing parked cars, attention should be paid to the possibility that pedestrians may choose to cross.

If you are someone who has been hit by a motor vehicle, you are entitled to claim compensation. This is a shocking and terrifying experience and the priority for you is to get safe and obtain medical help but try to obtain details of any parties and witnesses at the scene.

I was frightened after my accident as everything seemed normal, but for some reason it wasn't. I contacted Levenes as they were able to deal with my claim that happened in Belgium. I felt great relief when chatting to Tim that I wasn't alone in the issues I had and I wasn't going mad! Tim got me the help and assistance I needed to recover as well as was possible whilst conducting my case to ensure that I was compensated for the injuries that I will be left with. At times I have been awkward and argumentative, but Tim has always listened and explained the process until I understood. I also dealt with Maureen who I found to be friendly, empathetic and professional. I cannot recommend Levenes enough. Thank you. Richard
