Out of all road traffic accidents that take place each day in the UK, Pedestrians are the most vulnerable. When involved in a road traffic accident, especially one that involves being hit by a car, a pedestrian will receive the full force of the impact, which often results in severe and often life-changing injury.
Figures released by the 'Department of Transport reveal that in 2018, the number of pedestrians injured in road accidents topped 28,700+, of which 7,420 of these were killed or seriously injured (KSI’s) by road user types.
Almost a third of all pedestrian accidents in the UK comprises children and young people. Children can be unaware of the dangers surrounding them near schools or playgrounds and parks. If they have not learned to cross roads safely and fully appreciate the speed of moving vehicles then, the vulnerability of the child can be tragically exposed

We’ll just need a little more detail about what happened, so we can verify your claim and let you know your options.
Pedestrian Injury Compensation Claim Settlement values are provided as guidelines only and are taken from the Judicial College Guidelines surrounding general damages for pain and suffering.
More often than not it is difficult to estimate the final settlement of a Pedestrian accident compensation claim, at least at the very start of the claims process. Every case is different, and the final compensation value is largely proportional to the severity and scale of the injuries sustained.
In situations where extremely serious injuries have occurred, it may be prudent to allow time for medical professionals to assess the scale of physical, and, or psychological injury.
Where a serious and potentially life-changing injury is sustained, interim compensation payments can be arranged where liability is clear and without question. With all of this in mind, PSR Solicitors can assure you that we will be there to guide you and support you every step of the way. Our most immediate concern will be to ensure access is made to the very best medical expertise and treatments to help promote the best recovery possible

There are many different types of pedestrian accidents that occur on the UK’s roads, and every claim situation is almost unique in its own way. Examples of these are incidents where pedestrians are attempting to cross any type of road or a motorway. There can be accidents due to parking area imperfections and potholes, walkway obstructions, blind spots, or poor road maintenance.
Not all pedestrian accidents, consequently, are caused due to the driver. It could be that you need to pursue a claim against the council if the roads in the area you had your accident were poorly maintained.
There ever-increasing numbers of drivers on the roads with no insurance, with research from the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) showing that over 1.7 million drivers are uninsured, which is an alarming statistic.
The MIB is a group that was established in 1946 as a central fund to assure that members of the public who have been injured by an uninsured or untraceable driver are still eligible to claim compensation for their injuries.
