Claiming compensation as a pedestrian

Incidents involving motor vehicles don’t just affect car drivers – they can affect pedestrians too. As a pedestrian you have just as much right to use the road as a car, providing that you are using it in the appropriate locations. If you believe that you have been injured as the result of a negligent driver – and you were using the road at the correct area – then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any medical costs that you have incurred.

Claiming compensation as a driver

If you are the driver of a motor vehicle who has been involved in an incident with a pedestrian then you too could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Although it may seem in many accidents that the driver shoulders the responsibility for what has happened, in many cases the pedestrian could be equally at fault. If you have been injured as the result of a road traffic accident where the pedestrian was being negligent and may have been using the road in an inappropriate location then you could be eligible to claim for compensation. 

How can I claim?

Whether you are a driver or a pedestrian, if you believe you have suffered at the hands of a negligent member of the public, then you could be able to claim for compensation to cover any medical costs that you have incurred in addition to any loss of income that you have suffered as a result of your accident.
