The damage caused in pedestrian accidents

In 2015, 408 pedestrians were killed and 4,940 seriously injured after being hit by a car on UK roads. A further 18, 713 suffered slight to moderate trauma.

Being hit by a motor vehicle can cause life-changing injuries. At Russell Worth, our experienced personal injury lawyers have managed thousands of similar claims over the years and have a strong track record of claiming significant compensation for victims of pedestrian accidents.

If you the pedestrian are hit by a car, van, lorry, bus, motorbike or even cyclist, you are likely to come off worse than anything that hits you – it’s logical; you have literally NO protection.

Often it’s the case however that those hit and looking to make pedestrian accident claims are children, the elderly and vulnerable which can leave them in a seriously injured condition.

Despite many advances in vehicle technology and design to try and reduce the serious personal injuries sustained in a collision with a passenger, there are still considerable forces present, which can cause serious injuries.

Even if you didn’t sustain the injury from a direct impact, we can help you if you have been injured trying to dodge a vehicle that was being driven erratically.
