Road traffic accidents are common but the people most likely to be seriously injured are pedestrians as they have little to no protection against the impact of a collision. This is why it could be necessary to make a pedestrian injury claim, to cover medical bills, after care and any loss of earnings.
The driver of a vehicle carries a duty of care to other vehicles and pedestrians, to make sure they drive in a safe and reasonable way at all times. If they can be proved to be negligent on the road causing your pedestrian injury or accident you could be entitled to compensation.
Many pedestrians feel they could have been at fault by stepping out into the path of a vehicle. However the situation can often be complex which is why legal advice is first needed.
If you are hit by a driver that leaves the scene or does not have insurance you could still be entitled to compensation which is why it is important to seek legal advice.
