Pedestrian Accident Claims

If you have been involved in an accident as a pedestrian, it can be distressing and in some cases, life changing. Children are particularly at risk from such accidents and are recorded as the most vulnerable people on roads in the UK as drivers usually fail to notice a pedestrian until it is too late.

Children:

As a parent or a guardian of a child who has fallen victim to a road accident, you are able to claim on behalf of an injured child who is under the age of 18. Whilst most claims that are made as an adult have a period of three years wherein you can claim compensation, a child has until their 21st birthday.

Pedestrian Incidents:

Most accidents involving pedestrians are caused when a driver is:

  • Driving too fast to react to a pedestrian’s whereabouts.
  • Driving negligently or not paying attention.
  • Ignoring the traffic light system.
  • Driving dangerously.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Even at relatively low speeds, a car can cause devastating damage to a pedestrian and even in cases of a hit and run, Ackroyd Legal will ensure that you have the adequate information to claim the compensation that is owed you.

Making a Claim

Should you require our services in making a claim, we provide a No Win No Fee service. Therefore, you need only pay for our assistance if you successfully receive the compensation due to you. Due to the implications of such accidents to the physical and mental health of a claimant, Ackroyd Legal ensures that their expert personal injury solicitors tailor their knowledge to your case in order to attain the best results for you or your loved one.
