If you have been injured as a pedestrian, or if you have tragically lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in motor vehicle accident compensation claims, with an outstanding track record of obtaining maximum compensation for pedestrians injured in motor vehicle accidents.

Pedestrian accidents can occur when you are:

  • Struck by a car, bus, truck, motorcycle, tram, or other vehicle;
  • Crossing the road;
  • On a footpath.

Even if you were not using a designated crossing or were in some way at fault, you may still have a valid claim for compensation. Contact our expert motor vehicle accident lawyers as quickly as possible after your pedestrian accident so we can expertly assess your case and determine if you may be entitled to make a claim.

Strict time limits apply for pedestrian accident compensation claims, so the sooner you contact Lionheart Lawyers, the better.  

There is no cost to reach out to us for an initial consultation, and our no-win, no-fee policy means we will do everything we can to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

Legal Advice to Pedestrians Injured in Traffic Accidents

If you have been injured as a pedestrian, no matter who may be at fault, you should:

  1. Seek medical attention.
  2. Immediately report the accident to police. This is always an important step, especially if you end up needing to make a claim.
  3. Call Lionheart Lawyers for a free initial consultation before lodging your pedestrian injury claim. Our expert team will help you lodge all the correct forms so that you don’t miss any entitlements.

Even if you cannot identify the driver or vehicle involved in your accident, you may still be entitled to bring a claim under the nominal defendant/insurer scheme.

Examples of pedestrian injuries may include:

  • Hand or wrist injury;
  • Whiplash or muscle strain;
  • Back, shoulder or neck injury;
  • Leg, ankle or foot injury;
  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Injuries causing internal bleeding;
  • Sprained or torn ligaments;
  • Brain or head injury;
  • Other injuries requiring surgery;
  • Psychological injury or illness including PTSD, anxiety or depression.

As a pedestrian injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is very likely you will be in shock following the accident, and you may fail to recognise the extent of your injuries at first. It is also going to be difficult for you to assess the long-term impact of your injuries.

With vast experience in pedestrian injury claims, Lionheart Lawyers understand exactly how these kinds of accidents can impact your life and know how to obtain maximum compensation.

Compensation Claims for Fatal Pedestrian Accidents

If the unthinkable happens, and your loved one or someone you know has been killed in a pedestrian accident, the compassionate and caring team at Lionheart Lawyers can assist with a free initial consultation.

We will advise you of all the compensation you and your family members may be eligible to claim. Along with grief experienced by you and your family members, there can often be ongoing psychological trauma. We have experienced lawyers who will help you navigate this challenging time and access the support and compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Claiming Injury Compensation After Being hit by Car

Injury compensation exists to cover the unexpected costs arising from your pedestrian accident, and to help you recover a sense of normalcy in your life. The compensation sum you can claim will depend on your personal circumstances, the circumstances of your accident and the nature of your injuries.

Compensation for pedestrian accident injuries may cover:

  • Loss of income if you are unable to work;
  • Medical expenses;
  • Ongoing medical treatment;
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses;
  • Domestic assistance for household tasks;
  • Pain and suffering.

If your injury or impairment is permanent, then you may be entitled to make additional claims, including a TPD (total permanent disability) claim through your superannuation fund.

Let us simplify the process for claiming compensation for your pedestrian accident injury by:

  1. Gathering evidence of the accident, including witness statements, photographs and accident reports.
  2. Obtaining medical evidence of your injuries or illness caused by the accident.
  3. Once we have all the documentation in order, we will lodge your claim with the relevant insurer.
  4. If the insurer does not offer a reasonable settlement, then we will guide you through the next steps, which may include commencing court proceedings.

Rest assured that if your pedestrian accident claim ends up in court, our expert lawyers are ready to represent you and fight for the compensation you deserve.

If you have been advised by the CTP insurer that you sustained a ‘threshold’ (minor) injury and you disagree with this assessment and wish to dispute it, then be sure to contact us to understand your rights.

We know the major mental and physical toll that injury, pain and an uncertain future can take on you and your family. When you choose Lionheart Lawyers, we will manage your pedestrian compensation claim and be there to support you at every step of the process.
