A more personal approach to your pedestrian injury claim.

Being injured as a pedestrian is something you never expect. But when it does happen, you need the right support.

We’ve helped thousands of injured pedestrians get compensation, but we understand your situation is unique, and you’re different from every one of them. Getting you more compensation starts with building a personal relationship with you, to truly understand your situation.

There’s no cost to speak to a pedestrian accident lawyer, tell your side of the story, and find out how much you can claim.

We’ll get you more compensation.

Pedestrian accident injuries often mean time off work, unplanned expenses and financial stress. But we’re here to help. We get to know you and your family to learn about your life before you were injured. We look beyond your injuries, to understand your work, family, social and financial situation. Then we look at what’s changed. Many of our clients’ injuries have led to other life complications and health issues. By getting to know you personally we identify these issues and claim all your entitlements. That’s why you’ll get more compensation with a Law Partners pedestrian injury lawyer on your side.

What pedestrian accidents can I claim for?

Crossing the road.

Whether you were at a road crossing or not, if you’ve been hit by a motor vehicle you may be eligible for compensation.


On a footpath.

If you were struck by a vehicle on a footpath, then you can claim compensation to cover your losses.


If you’ve sustained serious injuries from a pedestrian accident, it’s very likely you can claim a lump sum settlement, and these lump sums can be substantial.

Even if you were distracted when you were injured (e.g. using your phone) and you were partly at fault, you may still be eligible for compensation. No matter how you’ve been injured as a pedestrian, you can call Law Partners for free advice on your compensation entitlements.

How we can help you.

Here are three ways our pedestrian injury lawyers can get more compensation for you:

Team icon

Give you free advice before you submit your claim. It’s critical that your pedestrian injury claim is submitted correctly and that your injuries are properly assessed, otherwise you could miss out on compensation you’re entitled to.

Magnifying glass over medical forms. Failure to warn/inform icon

Help you if you disagree with the assessment of your claim. If the TAC has denied any part of your claim, we can review the decision and provide free legal advice on your options.

Law Partners are the best. Throughout, Tanja Maksimovic, and team Jessica Terre, and Sarah Starnovsky, were clear they knew how to get the best outcome for me, and I was confident in them without hesitation.

I would highly recommend Law Partners to assist anyone with their compensation claim, I was represented by Ben Cortese and one of the paralegals, Allisa.

I was beyond happy with Ben and Allisa’s amazing professionalism and dedication in achieving the best possible outcome for my case, as I was involved in a serious car accident which left me with a broken nose and emotional trauma, they were there to guide me at every step of the way and supported me throughout the whole process, an absolutely amazing team.

Frequently asked questions.

You have one year from the date of the accident or the date when your injury first manifests itself to submit your claim.

However, the TAC may also accept your claim if it’s made within three years of the accident or the date when the injury first manifests itself, and you have reasonable grounds for the delay in making your claim.

In Victoria, there are three ways you may be able to claim a lump sum payout as a pedestrian:

  1. If you weren’t at fault in the accident, you may be entitled to common law compensation lump sums for loss of past and future earnings, and pain and suffering.
  2. If you have an impairment assessed at 11% or more you may be entitled to a permanent impairment lump sum.
  3. If you can’t return to work following your accident, you may be eligible for a TPD lump sum through your super fund.

You can call 13 15 15 to speak to a specialist car accident lawyer and get free advice on your entitlement to a lump sum payout.
