Pedestrian Accident Claims Solicitors

Damage caused by pedestrian accidents can be extremely severe. Fatalities might also be as a result of the accident. Providing you are not responsible for the incident, you are very likely to be able to claim compensation for your injuries. The actual compensation amount and level of support from additional services vary for each case.

Pedestrian accidents can result in a number of health issues like head injuries which in turn, could result in memory loss or even life-changing injuries such as spinal damage. This is why at Pabla Solicitors, we believe that getting you the support is just as important as making the claim for compensation. We’re dedicated to getting you what you need, ensuring that you receive the right medical treatment to recover, whether the damage is long-term or short-term. For any further information or advice please get in contact with Pabla Solicitors on 0161 446 1122 or send us an email and our expert motoring offence solicitors will be in touch.

As a pedestrian, you will have the right of way in a number of situations. No matter what type of vehicle you have been hit by, whether it be a car, van or truck, you will be able to make a claim. The amount of which you will be awarded, will however, be dependant on numerous factors.

Can I make a claim?

If the incident was caused by someone other than you, then making a claim for compensation could be very worthwhile. During the process of claiming for your compensation, you can rest assured that our team of experienced solicitors will provide you with all the legal advice needed to support you along the journey.

Making a claim should always be done as early as possible. It is important that you gather as much information as possible after the accident, including information that can be collected by talking to other drivers involved. Details such as their name, address, phone number, insurance information and license numbers are key in this type of claim. If you can take any photos at the scene of the incident, ensure that you do so as it will clearly outline the position of the vehicle, your injuries, skid marks, traffic signs and markers and any property damage.
