Accidents involving pedestrians

All road traffic accidents can cause serious injuries, however, pedestrians are the most at risk of being seriously injured.

As with all cases, in order to succeed you will have to prove, on the balance of probabilities, that the driver was negligent in causing your accident. 

The injuries that pedestrians can sustain will in many cases be serious and have a profound impact on their family, work and social life due to the physical and economic consequences. Injuries often include fractures, brain injuries, concussion, internal injuries, psychological symptoms and scarring.

Compensation is divided into:

General Damages – a lump sum of compensation for the injury, to compensate you for your pain and suffering.

Special Damages – these are your out of pocket expenses, e.g. loss of earnings, cost of care (provided for by family and friends or paid support), private treatment, damaged clothing and property.
