In Australia, pedestrians are unfortunately struck by motor vehicles on a road carriageway or beside it on a frequent basis.
Whether crossing the road at an intersection, walking beside it or performing work duties in the vicinity, you are eligible for compensation to the extent of negligently caused injuries and how they affect your income earning capacity.
If the accident was caused at least in part by a registered vehicle injury compensation is payable under the same third party (“CTP”) process as applies to vehicle accidents.
Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers ensure pedestrian injury compensation claims are conducted by lawyers with expertise in analysing the cause of the accident and understanding the particular injuries that result.
Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers ensure the claims they make for injured pedestrians include loss of income, pain & suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of future earning capacity, paid and unpaid care, expenses and the other financial losses that apply in your case.
Making early contact with an injury compensation expert will expedite the compensation claim process.
You are entitled to choose a legal team whose experience in pedestrian accidents gives them the confidence to take your case with no upfront fees and only getting paid if your claim is successful.
An expert team member is available to meet with you at our Brisbane Head Office – close by to major courts and insurers as well as medical and safety expert consultants – or at our Princess Alexandra Hospital office or at our Browns Plains Medical Precinct satellite office.
