Personal Injury Solicitors in Birmingham & Manchester
Our expert pedestrian injury solicitors will provide you with free initial advice on your accident claim and with our No Win No Fee agreements there's often no financial risk to you if you're unsuccessful.
Pedestrians, especially children, are among the most vulnerable road users in the UK. Thousands of pedestrian injuries occur through collisions with cars and other vehicles each year and the consequences can be extremely serious.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a pedestrian accident, our expert pedestrian injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. We have helped people to claim after they were injured while crossing the road or whilst walking on the pavement.
Our specialist solicitors recognise that a pedestrian injury following being hit by a car or other vehicle can completely change your life. We have a dedicated personal injury team to deal with the most severe pedestrian injuries, so if you or a loved one suffered a head, brain or spinal injury, we have the expertise needed to help you. We can help you claim compensation for a personal injury but we think it’s just as important to help you access the rehabilitation and ongoing care that you need.
Our Experience in Claims for Pedestrians Injuries
We have helped clients to claim compensation following pedestrian injuries after being hit by a car or other vehicle. This experience means we have worked on many types of claim, including accidents caused by:
- drivers going too fast
- drivers who were drunk or under the influence of drugs
- drivers who ignored traffic lights
- drivers who simply weren’t paying attention
In any of the above circumstances, you could claim compensation for your personal injury, and if your loved one has been killed on the road then you could claim compensation for your loss or on their behalf. If you don’t remember what happened or it’s not clear who was to blame, our Road Accident Investigation Team can re-construct the accident, find witnesses and help us work out who to claim against. We can also put you in touch with other departments within our firm who can advise on financial planning to make sure that you and your family are looked after not just immediately, but also in the long term.
How Compensation Can Help
If you have suffered a pedestrian injury, the amount of compensation you could claim depends on how seriously you were injured and what financial losses you suffered as a result. You can claim for anything from bruising to multiple fractures, paralysis and death. If the accident wasn’t your fault then you may be entitled to claim compensation. This money can then go towards:
- You need money to pay your bills if you can’t work due to your injuries
- You need money to pay for private medical treatment, rehabilitation, or changes to your home such as the installation of ramps
Compensation will also reflect the pain and suffering you have been through and if you have had to give up work it will also reflect that loss of future income.
