Every year, thousands of injury claims are made by pedestrians who have been hit by a car, motorbike, bicycle or another type of vehicle.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a collision then it’s important to seek the advice of a specialist injury solicitor as soon as possible. Whether your injuries were substantial, catastrophic or comparatively minor, you may be able to claim for compensation and receive a settlement to support your recovery.

Pedestrian injury claims are often raised as a result of accidents caused by negligent driving, exceeding speed limits or ignoring traffic lights. It’s worth noting that pedestrians now have additional protective rights when crossing junctions following significant changes to the Highway Code in 2022.

If you’re unsure who was at fault for a collision we can give you an objective expert opinion as to whether you have a case. You must submit a claim within three years of the incident to stand the best chance of success.

What is the average settlement for a pedestrian hit by a car in the UK?

It’s not uncommon for people who have been hit by a car to receive settlements worth thousands, if not tens of thousands, of pounds. The amount of compensation you’ll receive having been involved in a road traffic collision will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • Severity of physical injuries
  • Location of physical injuries
  • Severity of psychological trauma
  • Impact on work or home life
  • Cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Accidents where driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs
