How long do I have to claim for pedestrian injuries?

If you've been injured as a pedestrian, you have up to three years in which to begin your claim, though you may be given longer if you're claiming on behalf of a child or someone of diminished mental capacity. Time limits may vary if you are claiming through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

Can I claim if the accident was partly my fault?

Most accidents involving pedestrians are caused through the recklessness or inattention of drivers or riders.

However, even if you feel that you may have been partly responsible, it's always worth talking to us to establish the legal position. Even if you are partly to blame, you may still be entitled to receive compensation.

How long does a pedestrian injury claim take?

Naturally, this depends on the severity of your injuries, and whether an insurer is prepared to accept liability.

However, where your injuries are considered minor and the pedestrian claim is likely to be straightforward, we process every No Win No Fee accident claim through our fast track team to help you get the compensation you need as soon as possible.

How much pedestrian injury compensation can I claim?

As you might expect, the level of compensation awarded depends on the extent of your injuries and how serious they are.

At the same time, it's worth bearing in mind that you can claim for other losses caused by your accident, such as general damages, travel expenses and even loss of earnings. Where appropriate, we can also claim on your behalf for treatment such as physiotherapy and other rehabilitation
