Why can people make a pedestrian accident claim?
Motorists (in cars and on motorbikes or mopeds) are required, by law, to have insurance. In the event that they negligently cause a road accident, the innocent victims should be compensated as if the accident did not happen. Pedestrians (e.g. if you are a pedestrian accident walker) have as much right as anyone to use the road, so provided they are not responsible for the accident they can claim on the motorist’s insurance policy for compensation.
