Government statistics show that just over 25,000 pedestrian accidents are reported to the police each year with nearly 23% of these involving serious injuries or sadly being fatal. Not all accidents are properly reported and so the true number of all pedestrian accidents may be significantly higher.
Due to their very nature, the injuries suffered by pedestrians are frequently serious and the injured pedestrian often requires a degree of care and support for a period of time.
Children are particularly vulnerable to these types of accident, with nearly 30% of all pedestrian accidents involving children. Unlike many of our competitors, we have reduced the maximum contribution you can make on children’s cases to 10% so even if your claim is successful, your contribution to the legal costs would never be more than 10% of the compensation recovered.
