Pedestrian Compensation Claims

Accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles are tragically common, accounting for 15 - 20% of all road deaths in Australia. While most pedestrians are injured while crossing the road, accidents can also occur while walking along the side of the road, standing on the footpath or working on the road.


In Australia, drivers have a duty of care to pedestrians to drive carefully and to avoid causing harm or injury. If that duty of care is breached and you’re injured as a pedestrian, you may be entitled to claim compensation to help cover the cost of things such as lost wages and medical expenses.

Accidents involving pedestrians

As a pedestrian, there are a number of road accidents you could be involved in. As well as car accidents, these include incidents involving bicycles, trains, buses and even accidents caused by pedestrians, such as choosing to ignore the “walk” and “don’t walk” signals at pedestrian crossings.
