Pedestrian injury & accident compensation claims

Pedestrian accidents can be devastating, resulting in serious injuries and even fatalities. If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident that wasn't your fault, it is important to start a pedestrian accident compensation claim as soon as possible after the incident. At Stephensons, our experienced team of pedestrian accident solicitors can help you make a pedestrian injury claim and get the compensation you deserve. We understand the physical, emotional and financial impact of such accidents and will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the pedestrian accident compensation you deserve.

Our pedestrian accident solicitors specialise in securing the maximum amount of compensation for our clients, both in terms of injury award and financial losses (such as loss of earnings). We also understand that pedestrian accident compensation claims often lead to psychological symptoms such as anxiety, a specific phobia, or in severe circumstances, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Many pedestrian injury claims being brought by pedestrians are defended by insurance companies, with the defendant driver (and their insurer) alleging that the claimant is at fault, or has in some way contributed to the accident. Here at Stephensons our specialist team have the skills and knowledge to deal with such issues, using relevant precedent case law to help you win your claim. Call us on 0161 696 6235 for some free initial guidance on your options.

Recently settled pedestrian injury claims

Our client was crossing the road when they were hit by an uninsured driver who was subsequently charged with, and pleaded guilty to, driving without due care and attention. Our client suffered a fractured leg requiring multiple operations, as well as psychological symptoms. Court proceedings were issued against a potential insurer and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). The MIB ultimately accepted the case under the uninsured driver’s agreement and settlement was agreed in the sum of £55,000.

Our pedestrian injury claim solicitors acted for a client who was injured whilst waiting at a bus stop. Our client suffered a cardiac arrest at the scene and multiple other injuries. Our client couldn’t return to the same level of work, due to limitations following their injuries, nor could they work as many hours as they became easily fatigued. A settlement of £125,000 was secured. 

Stephensons acted for a client who was walking through a car park late at night when a vehicle reversed from its parking space and hit her from behind, causing multiple soft tissue injuries. Our client also developed an anxiety disorder which was diagnosed by a psychologist, with cognitive behavioural therapy treatment recommended. The defendant insurers disputed liability for the accident as the driver was alleging that our client merely fell over. However Stephensons continued to pursue the matter and were able to secure £5,110 in compensation. Our client was very pleased with the outcome, saying “I am so grateful for all your hard work and persistence in order to achieve this settlement for me. Thank you very much!“

Stephensons achieved an award of £12,150 for a pedestrian who was out jogging at the time of their accident. The defendant driver failed to take notice of our client and turned into a driveway, hitting him and causing a painful shoulder injury. The client initially dealt directly with the defendant insurer but was unable to reach a settlement, therefore he enlisted the help of Stephensons. We were able to properly advise our client on his claim, the merits of the defendant offers, and made him aware of his entitlement to claim for care and assistance provided by his wife as a result of his injuries; something the insurers had failed to do. This added over two thousand pounds to the settlement amount, which would likely have been lost if Stephensons had not been instructed.
