Pedestrian Hit by a Car at Zebra Crossing

Ms D was in the process of crossing a road in a 30mph zone at a clearly marked zebra crossing, while the amber lights were flashing, when a car collided with her and knocked her to the ground. Ms D later stated that she had seen the car approaching the crossing on her left side, and had assumed it would stop, given that the vehicle had plenty of time in which to do so and it was her right of way. The motorist was talking on his mobile phone as he approached the zebra crossing, and later acknowledged that he had been distracted, and was not paying proper attention to the road in front of him at the time.

Ms D was unable to walk following the accident, and a passerby called an ambulance to take her to hospital, where an X-ray showed that she had fractured the tibia bone in her leg and had sustained significant bruising to her upper body. Her recovery took over 3 months, and she was informed by doctors that she was fortunate that the fracture was non-displaced, and that no complications had affected the healing process.

  • Our Legal Advice
Ms D contacted Bartletts Solicitors during her recuperation, and after talking with our solicitor, Joe Smith, instructed our firm to bring a claim against the motorist and his insurers for her injuries. In correspondence with the relevant motor insurance company, we argued that the driver had clearly not taken due care when approaching the zebra crossing, and this was the direct cause of his vehicle colliding with and injuring our client. Ms D had seen the vehicle approaching, and had rightly estimated that she had plenty of time in which to cross the road safely, meaning that the accident was in no way her fault. Apart from her physical injuries, Ms D had also been psychologically affected by the accident, and had subsequently become afraid of crossing roads on her own. The insurance company admitted full liability for our client’s injuries on behalf of the motorist, and Ms D later received a cheque for £5,500 in compensation.
