In the five years from 2007 to 2011, about one in seven people killed on the road was a pedestrian. Of all crashes in which a pedestrian is killed, more than a quarter occur between 5pm and 9pm.
Pedestrian injuries, particularly in the Sydney metropolitan area, peak during the mid-morning (8am to 10am) and mid to late afternoon (2pm to 7pm). Pedestrian fatalities are more likely to occur on Fridays and Saturdays, while injuries are more prevalent on weekdays.
The current statistics from the Roads and Traffic Authority bear testimony to the increasing number of pedestrians who are injured by motor vehicles. The types of road and traffic incidents involving pedestrians range from being hit by a car while crossing a pedestrian crossing or at traffic lights to the cases where the pedestrian didn’t even see the vehicle that hit them.
Pedestrians injured by a motor vehicle suffer greater injury than other road users as they are unprotected and vulnerable when compared to other road users such as cars or trucks.
If you are a pedestrian who has been hit by a motor vehicle you need to speak to a Compensation Law Specialist to get the best legal advice you can on your entitlement to make a claim for compensation.

Many people are not aware that in New South Wales pedestrians injured by being hit by a motor vehicle are able to make a claim for compensation. This compensation includes money to cover your medical and rehabilitation expenses, money to cover any financial loss you’ve incurred by not being able to work as well as money to compensate you for your pain and suffering. In addition, you may receive a lump sum payment if the incident has caused you a permanent impairment meaning an injury that is not going to improve and return to it’s pre-incident state.
A common scenario in pedestrians being injured by being hit by a motor vehicle is being unable to identify the motor vehicle that caused the injury. In the cases of pedestrians being injured by a vehicle that left the scene, victims are still able to make a claim for compensation for your injury even though you do not know who caused the injury. Your claim for compensation will be made to the “Nominal Defender” which is an insurance company nominated to deal with your claim.
