Pedestrian accident injury claims

Our free injury claim assessment service will help you understand whether there is a reasonable chance of successfully pursuing your claim.

If you or a member of your family was injured in an accident as a pedestrian, either by being hit by a vehicle or by a slip trip and fall accident on a road or pavement we can help you.

To have your claim assessed at no cost to you just provide us with the details about the accident and your personal injuries.

Road accidents involving pedestrians

A pedestrian can claim compensation for personal injuries if they were injured in a road accident that was partly or wholly caused by the fault of someone else.

In personal injury law the word "vehicle" refers to road vehicles (cars, vans, trucks, motorbikes, bicycles, buses), vehicles on rails (trains, trams), water-based vehicles (ships, boats, ferries) and aircraft.

What we will do for you

  • Review your injury claim free of charge
  • Provide you with free legal advice and recommend what you should do next
  • After your case has been assessed we will tell you if we can offer you a No Win No Fee agreement
  • We won’t use legal jargon and if we take on your claim there will be no nasty surprises

Your rehabilitation, recovery and compensation

If we handle your pedestrian accident claim we will take steps to enable your medical condition to be assessed by a medical expert.

We will carefully investigate the accident collecting evidence, and review compensation pay-outs from similar cases to calculate the amount of personal injury compensation you should receive.

We also determine the damages you should receive for damages to your personal property, out of pocket expenses, lost earnings, missed pension payments and the medical and rehabilitation costs. Then your Personal Injury Solicitor can negotiate with the other side or start litigation (the process of taking legal action) to get a fair compensation settlement for you as soon as possible.

In personal injury cases where liability (fault) has been admitted by the other side we can apply for interim payments of compensation to be paid before the final settlement has been reached. This helps our claimants (customers) to pay for expenses without having to wait until the case is settled.

At Co-op Legal Services we want to make sure you are properly taken care of so we focus on you and your recovery as well as your accident claim. As part of a large ethical organisation, we ensure that you are fully supported throughout your claim, whatever your injury and circumstances.
