Pedestrian Accident Claims

Pedestrians can be anyone using the road, or footpaths near a road, when either out walking or jogging.

You may have been walking on or near a footpath, or attempting to cross a road, when struck by a motor vehicle.

Pedestrians are very vulnerable road users and we recognise the trauma that people can have when struck by a motor vehicle.

If you have suffered an injury following an accident as a pedestrian on or near a road we can act as your personal injury solicitor.

We can assist you during the personal injury claim, either by acting for you directly in discussions with the other party’s insurance company, or representing you with an application to the Personal Injuries Assessment Board.

Motorcycle Accident Claims

You don’t need to be just a motorist to be involved in a car accident. You may be a passenger in a motor vehicle, a pedestrian, a cyclist or motorcyclist involved in an accident which has caused you an injury.

Bicycle Accident Claims

We have represented many clients over the years that had the misfortune of suffering an injury whilst at work.

Pedestrian Accident Claims

Following an accident in a public place, such as on a footpath or on a road, it is not always the case that the public authority has a legal responsibility for the accident.

    Personal Injury : Your Top Questions Answered

    How long can a personal injury claim take?
    AYour claim length will depend on a number of factors such as; your type of injuries, the insurance company your dealing with, your PIAB application, the assessment and then whether you move on to legal proceedings.
    How much compensation will I be entitled to?
    AThat figure is hard to immediately determine. The book of quantum can help to give you some indication but the other factors that will be taken into consideration are:

    • Liability: who was at fault for the accident.
    • Injuries: the severity of the injuries
    • Expenses: all of the bills that were paid.
    Will my claim go to court?
    A Every case is different. In the majority of personal injury cases, the person making the claim will not end up in a courtroom.

    It is possible that the person at fault will seek to settle outside of court and your case will be settled in a meeting attended by you, your solicitor, and barrister to negotiate your settlement.

    It is entirely up to you whether to accept the settlement offered. If you do not accept then it will move to a court hearing where a judge will decide how much your settlement will be.
