Have you been injured in an accident as a pedestrian

There’s a high chance that we all walk at some point daily. Whether you’re coming from or going to work, a shopping centre, running some errands, the gym, or a simple leisure walk, you can never rule out the possibility of being involved in an accident when walking along footpaths or crossing roads.

A pedestrian accident involves a person travelling on foot and a motor vehicle. The motor vehicle could be a motorcycle, car, bus, truck, tram, or train. Injuries from such accidents vary from broken bones, fractured limbs, cuts, and other fatal injuries.

If you’re a pedestrian involved in a motor vehicle accident you may be eligible for compensation under the CTP Insurance scheme. Alliance Compensation & Litigation Lawyers has a dedicated team of lawyers experienced in pedestrian accident claims and a proven track record of getting favourable results for our clients.

Am I eligible to receive compensation for a pedestrian accident?

Yes. According to the Motor Accident Injuries Act NSW 2017, you can file a claim for and receive compensation for being involved in a motor accident as a pedestrian. It doesn’t matter if the accident was not, partially, or fully your fault.

As an injured pedestrian, you’re eligible for compensation by filing a claim through the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the vehicle at fault. If the accident was a hit-and-run and you didn’t get any vehicle or driver details, you’re still entitled to compensation. You can still file a claim with the Nominal Defendant office.

Keep in mind that the extent of the pedestrian accident compensation and benefits will depend on the extent of your injuries and whether you were at fault for the accident.

What’s the process of claiming pedestrian accident compensation?

Being a victim of a pedestrian accident can be challenging. You’re often confused as you don’t know whether to talk to the authorities first or rush to the hospital. Here’s the process to follow if you’ve been a pedestrian injured by a motor vehicle:

Collect evidence
Get the vehicle’s registration number and the driver’s details. If possible, also speak to witnesses and note their details.
Seek medical attention
Immediately go to a hospital and seek assessment from a medic. Make sure you keep all medical receipts and records of travel expenses associated with the treatment.
Involve the police
Report the pedestrian accident to the authorities and keep copies of the police report
Consult a personal injury lawyer
An accident lawyer will help you collect sufficient evidence, prepare paperwork, negotiate with the CTP insurer, and represent you in court.

What Pedestrian Accident Compensation am I entitled to?

It’s important to understand what are the different types of compensation you are eligible for if you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident. Below is a list of things that you can expect to claim:

Income support via weekly payments:
If you've lost income due to your motor vehicle accident, you may be eligible for weekly payments to help cover the loss of earnings during your recovery period.
Medical Expenses
This compensation covers the cost of medical treatment, including hospital fees, rehabilitation costs, and any ongoing healthcare needs resulting from the accident.
Pain and suffering:
If you've experienced significant pain and suffering due to your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident.
Commercial care & domestic assistance:
If your injuries require you to seek commercial care services or assistance with domestic tasks you can no longer perform, this compensation helps cover these additional expenses.
Permanent impairment:
In cases where the accident results in permanent physical or mental impairment, you may be entitled to an additional lump sum payment.

It’s important to note that if your injury is considered a threshold injury, you are only entitled to benefits for up to 12 months (excluding lump sum payment). If your injury is above the threshold then the duration you receive these benefits are extended.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’re required to submit an application for Personal Injury Benefits through the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) within 28 days for you to be eligible for pedestrian accident compensation. You also need to report the incident to the police and obtain an event number within 28 days.

It’s important to understand that even if a pedestrian is found to be partially responsible for an accident, they might still be entitled to compensation. This principle is rooted in the concept of ‘contributory negligence’, where responsibility is shared between parties based on their contribution to the accident. Our legal system examines the specifics of each case, considering factors such as the pedestrian’s actions and the driver’s response, to determine the degree of fault on both sides.

If it was decided that you (as the pedestrian) was at fault then the compensation you receive may be lower than if you weren’t at fault. It’s important to seek legal advice to fully understand what your options are. Our team at Alliance Compensation & Litigation lawyers are readily available to fight for your case. 

If the accident was a hit-and-run and you’re not able to identify the driver or the vehicle, the NSW CTP scheme allows you to claim compensation against the Nominal Defendant. The Nominal Defendant is a government insurer that helps people injured by uninsured or unidentified vehicles get compensation.

There’s no fixed time when it comes to the settlement period for a pedestrian accident compensation. Some cases take up to 2 years, depending on whether the victim needs surgery and the mode of treatment.

You need to find a good balance between submitting your claim as soon as possible and not compromising your damages. This is why you need to work with Alliance Compensation & Litigation Lawyers who will give you accurate estimates on timelines.

If you disagree with the CTP insurers’ decision related to your claim you can request an internal review with the insurer. This request must be completed within 28 days of receiving your decision from the insurer. 

In such cases where you also disagree with the decision post-internal review then you can also make an application to the Personal Injury Commission to get a further independent review. 

Our expert lawyers can assist you with these processes.

Experiencing a pedestrian accident can be an incredibly challenging time in your life. The last thing you need during your recovery is the stress of collecting all the necessary documentation and evidence to file a compensation claim.
