Pedestrian Accidents Leading To Compensation Claims
As a pedestrian if you have been struck by a car or another vehicle and it was the driver’s fault it can be relatively straightforward to achieve a compensation settlement. As a pedestrian you might even be entitled to make a No Win No Fee claim for your injury.
Many common situations give rise to pedestrian accidents resulting in personal injury claims, whether it be crossing at a zebra crossing, walking on the pavement and being hit by a car, or crossing in slow moving traffic and being struck; but as with all Road Traffic Accident claims fault needs to be established against the negligent party to make your compensation claim successful.
Usually the compensation settlement will be covered by the insurance policy of the driver of the offending vehicle. Even if the driver of the vehicle which caused your injury is uninsured compensation can be claimed from the Motor Insurers Bureau, a Governmental organisation set up to offer compensation for that very purpose.
In all cases Aim Accident Management can help you make a claim.

Pedestrian Injury Statistics
Tragically, over 30,000 UK pedestrians are injured or killed as a result of Road Traffic Accidents each year.
In 2010 the World Health Organisation (WHO) identified that half of all fatal Road Traffic Accidents involve pedestrians – combined with other vulnerable groups: motorcyclists and cyclists.
Hundreds of thousands of pedestrians die each year worldwide due to Road Traffic Accidents.
Types of Pedestrian Accident Compensation Settlements
If you are a pedestrian and you have suffered injury as the result of being hit by a car or any other type of vehicle and it was not your fault you will be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation, as long as you can show the accident took place and the extent of your injury was serious enough.
The following situations could easily result in a pedestrian compensation claim:
- Pedestrian injured trying to get out of the way of a dangerous driver.
- If you are hit by a vehicle while on the pavement or while on a pedestrian crossing these cases carry a high likelihood of a successful compensation payment.
- Even if you are crossing the road at an undesignated crossing place a successful claim can be made.
In all cases your case will have to be proved.
If you are a pedestrian who has been injured by either of the following cases, a compensation claim can still be made through the Motor Insurers Bureau.
- Hit And Run Accidents
- Injured By A Stolen Vehicle
- Injured By An Uninsured Driver
Remember, you may still be entitled to make a pedestrian compensation claim, even if the vehicle did not hit you.
Types Of Pedestrian Injury Claims
If you are a pedestrian who has been injured by a vehicle or if it is your family member who has been injured Aim can help you achieve compensation for your injuries.
- Adult And Children Pedestrian Injuries
- Pensioner Pedestrian Injuries
- Fatal And Non Fatal Pedestrian Injuries
All types of injuries can lead to a claim for compensation. In all cases if it can be shown the driver was negligent you will have a strong case to receive compensation if the level of your injury and suffering warrants it. The level of compensation will be dependant on the seriousness of the injury, the circumstances of the accident and other factors such as any expenses you as a pedestrian have incurred, including loss of earnings and medical bills.
