Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable of groups that can be involved in a Road Traffic Accident whilst passengers in a vehicle are often void of any control over an accident occurring. When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, they almost always sustain injuries ranging from bumps and bruises to serious fractures and head injury. Pedestrians often get struck by a vehicle whilst crossing the road or walking through a carpark. On the other hand, passengers in a vehicle are likely to sustain the same types of injury as the driver. However, this is not always the case. Passengers are particularly susceptible to injuries such as whiplash and usually find themselves in a collision when another vehicle crashes into the rear or side of the vehicle that they are traveling in.
No matter the severity, we're experts in handling claims for the often overlooked pedestrian or passenger involved in an accident. We can pursue claims for injury compensation and in many cases, for special damages such as loss of earnings, treatment and aftercare.
