Pedestrian Injury Compensation Made Easy
Pedestrians are vulnerable to road accidents. Whilst the roads in Stockport do have good safety records, accidents can still happen, and unfortunately do.
You are at risk from drunk drivers, those speeding, your children could have run out into the road, a car might have mounted the pavement, or you might have even been hit by a bicycle.
In most cases, UK courts will be on the side of the pedestrian. In most cases though, when we work for you there won’t even be a court appearance as most pedestrian accident claims in Stockport are settled outside with the driver’s insurance company.
