Pedestrian accident compensation claims

“Why me?”

That’s the question we hear most often from pedestrians who were going about their usual daily routine, only to have their lives turned upside down as a result of a serious injury that wasn’t their fault.

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured as a pedestrian in a road accident, we understand that you’ve probably experienced a huge range of emotions.

You may only now be starting to think about whether you or your family member has a case for compensation, and it’s completely understandable to be unsure about where to begin.

Our team of pedestrian accident injury experts are here for you.

We bring a wealth of experience in handling serious injury cases and providing expert legal representation. We’ll work hard to make sure you receive the maximum compensation possible – and we’ll go further.

Support beyond compensation

Compensation is important. But it’s not just about your financial needs. Settlement needs to take account of all the physical and emotional support you need in the short-term, as well as the challenges you may face long into the future.

At Serious Law, we’re dedicated to helping you with every aspect of your claim and your recovery.

We'll come to visit you anywhere in the country, at times that suit you. We arrange not only your immediate financial support, but we also set up bespoke private medical care and rehabilitation.

We get to know you and your family and we draw on our experience of working with other seriously injured adults and children to ensure that we introduce the right specialists to you at the right time.

For example, when the time is right, we’ll help you to source custom aids and adaptations to reduce the impact of your injury on the rest of your life.

Pedestrian accident claims experience

Cases involving pedestrians are amongst the most challenging, both emotionally and from a legal perspective – that’s why it’s essential to get a solicitor with the right experience on your side from the start.

Serious Law has been working on serious injury cases involving pedestrians for over 25 years, and we have a proud track record of winning significant multi-

We regularly take on pedestrian injury cases abandoned by other law firms, when our expert understanding of the nuances of complex cases, together with our trusted, long-standing relationships with some of the UK’s leading forensic and accident reconstruction experts, allows us to achieve a successful outcome.

To give you an example of our work, in a recent child pedestrian case involving significant injuries, the Serious Law team successfully introduced evidence from a UK expert in road transport safety and an accident reconstruction specialist from a leading firm of consulting scientists and engineers.

By doing so, we were able to successfully challenge the data contained within the police technical report, examine the relationship between the speed of the car and the injuries suffered, and we achieved a result which was far beyond the initial expectations of our client’s family.
