Road accident compensation claims are not exclusive to those directly involved in the vehicles. Should a pedestrian be injured as the result of a road accident they too are eligible to claim for compensation.
It is all too easy for pedestrians to be caught up in road accidents. Drivers have a duty of care towards pedestrians and sadly many neglect this, opting to drive dangerously, often under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
How to claim compensation from a pedestrian accident
As with any accident claim it is vital to gather as much information as possible.
Take notes of any damage and injuries and if possible take photos as these will help build a strong case. Take names and addresses of any witnesses and keep record of any doctor appointments or treatments.
