Claiming compensation as a pedestrian injured in a road accident

Of all road users, pedestrians are surely amongst the most vulnerable. Comparatively unprotected as they are, pedestrians caught up in road traffic accidents are often much more seriously injured than those behind the wheel of any vehicles involved. So it is especially important that, as an injured pedestrian, you are able to access the very best support, advice and, if required, legal representation from reliable legal experts you can trust.

Our top-quality and highly-respected personal injury claims solicitors have been advising, supporting and successfully representing pedestrians injured in traffic accidents for more than three decades – we have extensive experience in working on claims of all sizes including complex, high value cases and we have achieved many settlements exceeding £1,000,000.

always on your side

Because we only work for claimants, we always stay focused on what is best for you – and you can count on us for continued support that extends long after your pedestrian accident compensation claim settles. We pride ourselves on building solid lasting personal relationships with individual clients who know they can always rely on us.

As a full-service law firm, we have ongoing in-house access to a full range of high-quality legal expertise – and our trusts, investment and tax planning teams are qualified to provide expert and dependable professional financial advice.

We are proud to be associated with Headway West Sussex (HWS), the local branch of the UK’s leading acquired brain injury charity – one of our partners sits on the HWS committee as a Trustee – and George Ide LLP is a founder member of the Motor Accident Solicitors’ Society (MASS), an organisation set up in 1991 to promote and protect the interests of road accident victims.

Access to the best available treatment

Worryingly, many pedestrians are injured every year as a result of traffic accidents caused by the negligence of road users and, in many cases, as victims they need expert treatment and rehabilitation.

Our dedicated personal injury team has access to some of the UK’s best treatment, therapy and rehabilitation resources and, because we take pride in getting to know each of our clients as individuals, our in-depth understanding will help us locate the care provision that best suits your specific needs.

In addition to finding the most suitable rehabilitation centre for you, our team will ensure sufficient appropriate help is on hand if you are coping with a disability, match you with a best-fit physiotherapy and psychotherapy practitioner, and assist with any necessary arrangements or alterations at home.

In cases of financial difficulty, we may be able to secure an early payment of interim compensation to help you through the initial stages of your recovery; we can also offer Court of Protection and Deputyship services to protect the welfare and finances of accident victims who are unable to manage their own affairs.
