Some of the most serious road traffic accidents that occur in the UK involve pedestrians. At Graham Coffey & Co. Solicitors, we have significant experience representing victims of pedestrian accidents and helping them obtain compensation for their injuries. We are also experienced in assisting the family members of fatal road traffic accidents.
No matter how minor or severe a pedestrian accident injury may be, it is important to seek medical attention and contact our knowledgeable lawyers for advice.
If you did not pursue a personal injury claim after an accident, don't worry. You can still make a claim within three years of the accident. This is not uncommon, as many people do not know who was at fault for the accident and resulting injury, and therefore they don't realise they may have a claim. Even if a pedestrian fails to look before crossing the road, often, the driver will still be responsible for some degree of fault, as vehicles are required to give way to pedestrians.
Zebra and Road Crossing Injuries Solicitors for Pedestrians
Our solicitors regularly assist clients injured in pedestrian accidents involving:
- Zebra/pelican/toucan crossings
- School gates crossings
- Country roads

It is important to obtain the details of the person who hit you or your loved one, including the driver's vehicle registration and insurance information. Witnesses can also play a crucial role in pedestrian accidents. If you are concerned that the driver is not insured, report the accident to the police as soon as possible.
