Am I entitled to compensation if I’m a pedestrian hit by car?

You’re able to make a claim when you are left the victim of a traffic collision caused by the negligence of another party.

If you are unfortunate enough to be a pedestrian hit by a car or motor vehicle, you’ll need the guidance of a qualified legal service, such as Pedestrian Law Scotland, who provide sound advice and legal representation when seeking compensation for the accident.

Unlike some legal advice services in Scotland, Pedestrian Law Scotland is highly-trained in dealing with pedestrian accident claims where a pedestrian has been hit by a car and the subsequent claims process the victim has to go through.

This type of road traffic collision is often not the fault of the victim and Pedestrian Law Scotland is ready to take on your case if you’re:

  • A pedestrian hit by car or other motor vehicle while crossing the road
  • A pedestrian hit by car or other motor vehicle while using a pedestrian crossing, or;
  • A pedestrian hit by car while walking on the pavement.

What’s the first step to claiming compensation if you’re a pedestrian that’s been hit by a car?

If you’ve been hit by a car as a pedestrian, here at Pedestrian Law Scotland we’ll assess the details of your accident and take on your case if we believe there is grounds to make a claim.

With pedestrian accident claims, you’re entitled to make a claim up to three years after the incident has taken place. However, we recommend reaching out to Pedestrian Law Scotland as soon as possible following the accident to start the claims process.

To get started, you can call us on 0333 555 7781 for an immediate, no obligation legal consultation, totally free of charge. We’ll listen to all the details of the traffic accident and answer the questions you’re likely to have regarding the pedestrian accident claim. Alternatively, just complete our initial claim form.

Someone from the Pedestrian Law Scotland team will then arrange a face-to-face meeting to discuss a potential claim – either in our office or somewhere more convenient if you are unable to travel due to injury – and we’ll go through what is likely to happen if you go ahead with the compensation claim.

What does ‘no win, no fee’ mean when making a compensation claim?

If you and Pedestrian Law Scotland make a mutual decision to go ahead with the pedestrian accident claim, we work on a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement.

This means that if you’re hit by a car as a pedestrian and you win the claim made against the other party, you won’t pay anything to Pedestrian Law Scotland or for any other services, such as those provided by medical companies.
