Pedestrian Injury Compensation
Pedestrians are highly vulnerable road users and the aftermath can be devastating when a pedestrian is injured in a motor vehicle accident.
If you were a pedestrian who was injured by a motor vehicle, you are likely to be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses under the compulsory third party insurance scheme. The expert personal injury lawyers here at Stacks Goudkamp will advise you on your rights and submit a claim to the compulsory third party (CTP) insurer of the vehicle that was at fault.
Under ‘blameless accident’ legislation in NSW, as a pedestrian you may be entitled to compensation if nobody was to blame for the accident, for example if the driver of the vehicle that hit you lost control due to a medical condition. Even if you were partially to blame for the accident, you may still be entitled to damages.
We will explain your legal rights and what you can claim, and deal with the CTP insurer on your behalf. We will take away the stress of making a personal injury claim so that you can concentrate on getting your life back on track.
We have over thirty years of experience in bringing personal injury claims for pedestrians, and over that time we have secured compensation for countless pedestrians who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents.
As well as assisting clients who have been injured in NSW, our motor vehicle claim lawyers have helped clients who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents across Australia and overseas.

Pedestrian injury compensation case studies
Our client was a pedestrian who was struck by a motor vehicle when she was walking on the driveway of McDonalds in a country town. As a result she suffered a very serious injury to her ankle.
At the time of the accident she was 56 years of age and fully employed, and as a result of her injuries despite her best efforts to return to work, had to retire prematurely.
Her injuries were assessed at below 10% whole person impairment but she was still able to achieve an out of court settlement for a considerable sum.
