Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Overview

Hit by a car? You may have a claim.

Pedestrians, who are hit by cars and other vehicles on our roads, can suffer horrific injuries. This is why it is so important that pedestrians injured on our roads are aware that they are entitled to access motor accident compensation for their personal injuries. 

Pedestrian accidents can happen in a variety of circumstances, from hit and run accidents, to accidents on pedestrian crossings and at traffic lights. The injuries suffered are generally more severe because of the lack of protection that pedestrians have against cars and trucks.

If you or your child has suffered a pedestrian injury then you may benefit from contacting a motor accident compensation lawyer.

At Gerard Malouf & Partners, we have a unique understanding of the dangers facing pedestrians on our roads and this understanding is shown in our 98% success rate. We work hard every day to ensure that those with pedestrian accident compensation claims receive their maximum entitlements to compensation.

Examples of pedestrian injuries & compensation

Pedestrian injuries can include:

  • Broken bones and lacerations
  • Back injuries
  • Brain and head injuries
  • Catastrophic injuries that allow access to the Lifetime
  • Care and Support Scheme.
  • Under the Motor Accident Compensation Scheme pedestrians injured on our roads are entitled to receive the same compensation as other road users.
 

Pedestrian injury compensation includes:

  • Reimbursement of hospital, medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Compensation for any future medical expenses in relation to injuries sustained in the accident
  • Compensation for past economic loss such as loss of wages while you recover from your injuries
  • Compensation for future economic loss where your working life has been reduced as a result of your injuries
  • Lump sum compensation if you have suffered a permanent impairment as a result of your injuries
  • Lump sum compensation for your pain and suffering
  • Payment of legal costs in relation to the claim for compensation
Process

Pedestrian Injury Accidents and Children

If you are a parent of a child who has been injured in a pedestrian injury accident then you are not alone. About eighteen per cent of claims made on behalf of children each year relate to pedestrian injuries.

Under the motor accident compensation scheme children who are injured on our roads are immediately eligible to receive payment for their hospital, medical and rehabilitation expenses regardless of whether they were at fault for the accident.

So, if your child was injured in a pedestrian injury accident where they were partly to blame for the accident by running in front of a car or crossing the road on a red light, they are still entitled to receive these payments. If they were not at fault for the accident they may also be eligible to receive lump sum payments of compensation for future economic loss, permanent impairments and pain and suffering. A pedestrian injury lawyer can help you determine whether your case is eligible or not.
