UK pedestrian accidents and injuries

Over a hundred pedestrians are injured on the roads each week in the UK, and sadly there are also several pedestrian fatalities in England and Wales each week. Many collisions with pedestrians are caused by drivers not paying attention or simply not seeing the pedestrian.

Common road accidents include motorists mounting the pavements where a pedestrian is walking, collisions at a pedestrian crossing or zebra crossing, bus collisions, collisions following incorrect traffic signals, and collisions with cyclists, motorcyclists, and e-scooters at junctions and traffic lights.

Rural roads pose a particular danger to pedestrians, because of poor lighting, and many people are seriously injured crossing at road junctions.

Broken bones and bone fractures are common injuries in these types of accidents. Pedestrians frequently fracture their hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, legs, and back in accidents. Serious bone breaks can also occur, including compound fractures where the broken bone punctures through the skin.

However, there are a range of other injuries that can occur, including brain injury and even amputation. Injured pedestrians often suffer from trauma after the accident as well as stress. They may suffer loss of earnings and other impacts from the accident, and they may even experience life-changing injuries.

Pedestrian Accident Claims – Next Steps

Before contacting a lawyer, it is essential to contact the police if you have been hit by a car, motorcycle or bicycle, or injured in a road traffic accident in any way.

Once the police have been contacted, PR Scully’s solicitors will be able to obtain most of the details for your pedestrian accident claim case from the evidence in the police report.

Our firm will need to find out what happened, who the driver was insured with and whether there were any witnesses present who can assist with your case.

Before going ahead with your pedestrian accident compensation claim case, it is imperative to establish responsibility for harm and whether the driver was at fault. 

It’s vital to use specialist pedestrian accident solicitors for your accident claims. PR Scully injury solicitors are UK personal injury compensation claim lawyers who operate on a no-win no fee basis.

Pedestrian Injury Compensation Claim Process

Our team of experienced attorneys will guide you through the entire claims process. Making pedestrian accident claims in order to claim pedestrian injury compensation requires proving liability to the fault insurance company.

Details of the accident events must align with your incident statement. Circumstances surrounding your accident, alongside your physical injuries, are vital. These include the vehicles involved, the driver, poor road maintenance, and whether you were in oncoming traffic. 

Pedestrian injury claims for severe injuries or a fatal pedestrian accident must be reported to the police immediately. Evidence from CCTV footage and dashcam footage can be especially useful for proving that a road user was the cause of your injuries.

Can I receive compensation after being injured in a hit-and-run accident?

If the police did not attend the accident scene, you should report it to them as soon as possible, especially if you were hit by a car in a hit and run.

If you, or any witnesses to your pedestrian accident have the registration of the vehicle driver, PR Scully will be able to carry out a search and trace the details of the driver and the insurers.

Even if the person who was driving cannot be traced, there are still accident claim options that we can pursue on your behalf.

The Motor Insurers Bureau is an organisation that will meet accident claims against untraced drivers as long as they are satisfied pedestrians claims have taken place as described.

What happens if I cannot work because of my injuries?

We understand how difficult things can be if you lose your ability to work due to pedestrian injury. Losing income becomes especially hard when there are still bills to pay. If liability to your pedestrian accident claim is not disputed, PR Scully will ask the fault insurers to make an interim payment that covers your loss of earnings while off work.

If you are self-employed, the fault insurers are likely to ask for copies of your accounts or tax returns to prove loss of earnings before they will agree to release payment.  We can discuss this with you in more detail if necessary.

Contact us today via our website or ring us on 0161 768 3174 to make an enquiry about the possibility of damages if you are unable to work following an accident.

What happens if I need medical treatment but cannot pay for it?

If we are satisfied that the pedestrian accident was not your fault, we can arrange for you to have physiotherapy rehabilitation carried out and we will recover the physiotherapy services costs from the fault insurer.  

A physiotherapist will carry out an initial assessment and should be able to tell you how many sessions of treatment you are likely to need. You may also be able to receive private medical treatment if the treatment you require has long waiting times on the NHS.

How are my pedestrian injuries assessed?

PR Scully will arrange for you to be seen by a doctor who will ask you questions about the injuries that you suffered as a result of the pedestrian accident.  The doctor will also ask to see your medical records and whether you have had to take time off work and how your home life has been affected. They will make a comprehensive assessment of your needs, capacity and any possible disability following the accident.

If you have not suffered life-changing injuries, it would be a good idea to think about the ways in which your life has been affected by the injuries before meeting the doctor to ensure all your incurred expenses and inconveniences can be covered.  

For example, if friends or family members had to help you with day-to-day tasks such as housework that you would normally have done yourself. Pedestrian accident statistics show that alongside minor injuries, the most common injuries suffered after hit-and-run accidents involving pedestrians are those to our mental health.

Other injuries may include: cuts, bruises, broken bones, leg injuries, brain damage, knee injuries, brain injuries, eye injury, head injuries and whiplash. In some tragic circumstances, pedestrian accidents can also result in the death of a loved one.

Once they have met with you, the doctor will prepare a report and will predict, as accurately as possible, how long they think it is likely to be until your injuries have healed completely. 

If you have suffered from a soft tissue injury to your neck or back (more commonly known as a “whiplash” injury), the doctor will say how many months they think it will be before you make a complete recovery from your injuries. The doctor will make an assessment of the severity of your pain and of the impact on your capacity.

How much compensation will I be entitled to receive?

Once we have the medical report from the doctor who examined you, as long as you are happy with the report, we will let the fault insurers have a copy and ask them to make a settlement offer for your claim for pedestrian compensation.  

We will be able to advise you in advance of the pedestrian accident compensation settlement we think you should receive. The settlement figures for pedestrian accidents vary depending on how serious your personal injuries are and how long they are likely to last. From experience, PR Scully knows what money you are likely to receive in a settlement for different types of pedestrian accident claims.  

In order to assess an amount for pedestrian compensation, a lawyer will look at previous pedestrian damage cases that have been decided by the Court and also at the Judicial College Guidelines which sets out how much compensation clients should receive.  If the amount of pedestrian accident compensation offered is too low, we will advise you whether we think Court proceedings should be issued.

How does the fee arrangement with PR Scully work?

Many clients rightly worry about how much legal fees will cost for a pedestrian accident claim, and what it means working with ‘no win no fee’ or success fee agreements. 

We promise to get you 100% of the compensation that you deserve. Because we understand that our clients may not be able to afford legal fees for pedestrian accident claims up front, we give clients the option of a conditional fee agreement or working on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.

No win no fee accident claims, or operating on the basis of a ‘success fee.’ means that we do all the necessary work to make a work accident claim, and will only be paid if the case is successful. This reduces your financial risk when making a pedestrian accident claim.

We will not surprise you with hidden fees, and will give you regular updates throughout the course of the claims process. Get in touch today for a consultation about pedestrian car accident compensation or your pedestrian injury claim.
