Being hit by a car can be devastating. Your injuries may be severe and even life threatening and the accident will have a huge impact on your life. You will probably be in pain, upset and unsure about what your future holds, both in terms of your injuries and also financially if you are unable to work for a long time.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident you may be able to make a claim for compensation and we can help you to understand your legal position and to then decide if you would like to claim compensation for your accident.
Pedestrian accident circumstances
There are a number of different ways in which pedestrian accidents can happen. There are also a number of circumstances in which you may be partly to blame for the accident, but this will not affect whether you will be able to claim. It will, however, affect the amount of compensation you receive.
Pedestrian accidents can happen when you are:
• crossing a road
• walking on the pavement
• using a pedestrian crossing
• using a zebra crossing
• standing at the side of the road or
• waiting at a crossing or traffic lights

Having advised you of your legal position, and provided we believe that your claim is likely to succeed, we will send a letter to your opponent’s insurer setting out the main information with regard to your claim. We will also consider with you whether it is reasonable to request an interim payment from your opponent’s insurer, especially if you are struggling financially as a result of the accident.
