Chambers UK
Personal Injury

Many personal injury claims result from pedestrians being hit by cars or cyclists. Injuries range from catastrophic – sometimes fatal – to comparatively minor ones where physical and psychological symptoms may resolve in a relatively short period of time.

Penningtons Manches Cooper’s personal injury team advises on all types of road traffic accident claims, helping not only injured drivers or passengers in car accidents, but also cyclists, pedestrians and other road users.

Every case is different and we always tailor our advice to each client’s specific needs and objectives. We seek to achieve the best possible outcome in pedestrian accident claims, not only in terms of financial compensation, but also to address medical and other needs resulting from the accident.

We believe that our clients should have the best assistance possible to maximise the speed and extent of their recovery and we encourage defendants to meet these needs at the earliest possible stage, securing interim payments to fund rehabilitation where appropriate. We will investigate all the implications of our client's injuries – ranging from loss of earnings to care, accommodation, transport, therapy and treatment needs.

Our experienced personal injury team can advise in relation to a wide range of claims and has a particular reputation for dealing with high value cases where liability is disputed.
