Pedestrians can be vulnerable to being struck by vehicles, usually at pedestrian crossings where drivers have not seen the crossing or were driving too fast to stop in time, or sometimes where a car or van partially mounts the pavement to park.  Pedestrians can also be hit by cars when crossing the road between traffic or where a collision has occurred and one vehicle is knocked onto the pavement.  Pedestrians can also be injured by bicyclists riding on pavements.
 
Road users have a duty to take reasonable care to avoid causing injury or damage to others using the road and should take road conditions, weather, traffic and the likelihood of pedestrians crossing the road into account.  In cases where a pedestrian has been injured by a driver not taking reasonable care, a criminal prosecution can result.
 
Pedestrian injuries can range from minor bruises and cuts to very serious and possibly fatal injuries.  Lawson-West can help arrange for physiotherapy and other rehabilitation where medical advice recommends it as well as claiming compensation for injuries and expenses sustained as the result of an accident.
