PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT SOLICITORS - PERSONAL INJURY COMPENSATION CLAIMSSOLICITORS HELPLINE: ☎ 0330 660 7119
Our pedestrian accident solicitors are members of the Solicitors Regulation Authority panel of personal injury experts. They deal with pedestrian accident compensation claims using the no win no fee scheme. Over 20,000 pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every year and people of all ages are affected however school children and the elderly are the most vulnerable. More than 3,000 child pedestrians suffer serious injuries every year with excessive vehicle speed being a factor in a third of these accidents. Road traffic accidents are the biggest single cause of accidental death amongst children and young people.
Road accidents can be particularly difficult so far as evidence is concerned especially if there are no independent witnesses. In order to establish liability against a driver our pedestrian accident solicitors regularly call upon the services of specialist forensic accident reconstruction experts who will present scientific evidence following detailed analysis of the circumstances of a pedestrian accident. Recent advances in computer technology have made it possible to recreate accidents using the latest virtual reality programs which take into account physical evidence, road geometry, weather conditions, injury mechanism, ergonomics and technical data. Information from tyre marks, pedestrian throw, pedestrian speeds, reaction times, coefficient of friction values, vehicle mass, angles at impact and visibility can be mathematically modelled to estimate speeds and ascertain the possible sequence of events.
A serious personal injury can be devastating for both the victim and their family. Every case is different in the severity and the consequences and for those who sustain severe injuries rehabilitation can be a difficult challenge. In addition to the pain and suffering of physical injury victims may also suffer emotional anguish which requires psychological treatment. Most victims have to cope with loss of earnings and loss of independence in the short-term and whilst money recovered through a pedestrian accident compensation claim cannot make up for the suffering caused, it can help to alleviate financial distress. Our pedestrian accident solicitors will give you an early indication on the chances of success and will give an estimate of potential damages that may be awarded at the first opportunity.
Most traffic collisions involving pedestrians cause severe personal injury and victims and their families face lost wages, pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Family members suffer economic loss, mental anguish and loss of companionship. In the event of death, families are torn apart without warning. Pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles may have a claim against the driver but it must be proved that the driver was negligent and his negligence caused the accident. The very nature of the circumstances of an accident involving a pedestrian usually suggests that the driver will ultimately be held responsible and pedestrian accident compensation claims claim will usually be successful.
