Pedestrian accident claims

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a pedestrian to be involved in a road traffic accident. Transport Scotland reported that pedestrians accounted for a sixth of all road casualties in Scotland, which amounts to a staggering 1,688 people a year. This means that around 4 to 5 people every day are hit by a car, causing injury.

Pedestrian injuries from the road traffic accident may be minor, but in many instances they can be more serious, and even fatal. Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable road users as they have no protection from a collision, there is no seat belt or protective clothing to minimise injuries. Car companies have tried to address this with many design features which are aimed at minimising injury but the fact it is a simple, if a pedestrian is struck by a moving vehicle the consequences are serious.

Some reasons as to why road accidents involving pedestrians occur:

  • Rural roads that are narrow and have no pavement or crossings
  • Lack of lighting
  • Failing to look properly
  • Driving too fast for road conditions
