Road Accidents Involving Pedestrians in Elgin
Pedestrians are one of the most vulnerable road users. If you have suffered injury as a result of being knocked down as a pedestrian it is unlikely that you were fully at fault. You should not assume that because you were on the road it was your fault.
Unfortunately, as a pedestrian, it is likely that any injury will be serious. Physical injuries and mental distress can take months or even years to resolve. If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident as a pedestrian it is important to seek expert legal advice.
We will assist you in obtaining maximum compensation, not only for your injury but for loss of earnings, damaged clothing, jewellery or footwear.
We have assisted many pedestrians who were injured due to:
- drivers going too fast
- drink drivers and drivers under the influence of drugs
- drivers who ignored traffic lights
- hit and run and untraced drivers
If you are injured and more than one vehicle was involved in the incident it may not be immediately obvious who was at fault. You should take the details of all of the cars involved.

Safety tips for pedestrians
Follow the Green Cross Code
Most of us were taught this at school and it remains a good source of useful information for all pedestrians - Click here to refresh your memory.
Wear light reflective clothing
Particularly at night or during winter when it is dark from late afternoon.
Don't wear headphones
As mentioned in the Green Cross Code it is often possible to hear traffic before you can see it so wearing headphones makes you more vulnerable as a pedestrian.
Don't use your mobile
If you are talking on a mobile or trying to send a text whilst crossing the road your attention will not be fully focussed on the traffic, leaving you more vulnerable.
Restrain any pets or children
Make sure you have a firm hold on any pets or children walking with you. If they step into the road while it is unsafe to do so they could be injured themselves or could cause the driver to swerve and be involved in another accident.
