As pedestrians going about our everyday lives, we all assume that because we are walking along a pavement, or crossing the road at a designated crossing, we are safe.
The unfortunate fact is that every year, hundreds of pedestrians are injured and even killed by other road users. Figures from the UK Department of Transport report that there were 28,482 road traffic accidents involving pedestrians on our roads in 2008. Of this figure, 572 pedestrians were killed and 6,070 were seriously injured.
It is often the most vulnerable pedestrians who are at risk – with children and the elderly accounting for a significant number of pedestrian accidents and casualties.

Claiming Compensation Following a Pedestrian Accident
Farleys Solicitors have successfully achieved thousands of pounds in compensation for victims of pedestrian accidents. These cases have included accidents where pedestrians have been struck by cars, vans, buses, cyclists, and motorbikes. Although the circumstances vary in each case, accidents are often caused by vehicles driving too fast, or failing to observe the rules of the road, such as failure to stop at a zebra crossing.
The injuries sustained following a pedestrian accident can be severe and in some cases can have serious and long lasting effects on the victim’s quality of life. The solicitors at Farleys can help you claim the compensation you deserve to recover medical costs, compensation for your injuries and any loss of earnings.
