Who We Can Help with London Pedestrian Accident Claims
If you have been unfortunate enough to be hit by a car, knocked over, or involved in a road accident in London, and it wasn’t your fault, then there’s every chance you could be eligible to claim for pedestrian accident compensation.
As a pedestrian you are in the group of people who are most at risk from serious injury. This is why car drivers and other vehicle owners must always give you the right of way. Sadly that doesn’t always happen though and can lead to serious injury, and in some cases fatalities.

Pedestrian Injury Compensation in London – How Much?
Compensation amounts will vary from person to person. We treat all clients as individuals, and each case is very different. Because of that we cannot publish sample compensation amounts for pedestrian injury compensation.
However, if you call us and give us some details on what happened to you we should be able to form some quick opinions on what your claim could be worth. Please note though, we will need to prove that the accident was not your fault, and was due to another person’s negligence.
In order to support this process and any pedestrian accident claim, our lawyers will need some information from you. We can also help you to gather this documentation and evidence. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Names, addresses, and details of any witnesses
- Information on the driver involved
- Details of any police reports
- Information on medical treatment including hospital records
- Access to video or photographic evidence if available
- Costs incurred such as medical treatment and travel
In terms of what you can claim for, our London pedestrian accident lawyers will seek to win damages and compensation for the following aspects:
- Compensation for pain and suffering

- Financial damages for loss of earnings
- Medical costs both past, present, and future
