Compensation for Pedestrian Injury in Cyprus
Even though walking is considered a most beneficial form of exercise, it is of no surprise that with so many cars and people on the roads, hundreds of pedestrian accidents occur every year.
If you have been injured as a result of such accident, you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries, for any medical expenses incurred, continuous treatment, as well as for the pain and suffering you have been subjected to.

Pedestrian Accident Case Examples
We have helped people who have been through various types of pedestrian accidents involving cars, buses and lorries including:
- Accidents caused by a driver who was speeding or failed to stop at a traffic light;
- Accidents caused by drivers driving too fast on a neighbourhood street;
- Accidents caused by a driver at a pedestrian crossing;
- Accidents caused by drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Accidents caused by uninsured or untraced drivers
How are Pedestrian Accidents Different
Even though, it is often mistakenly taken for granted that in accidents involving pedestrians the liability always lies with the driver of the vehicle, it is often the case that a Court will also find some liability in the pedestrian himself. Court precedents have at times held that at times pedestrians cross the street without exercising proper care and not at the pedestrian crossing. Hence it is important to first collect all appropriate evidence to prove the liability of the driver and that the pedestrian is not also liable for the accident.
Some things to keep in mind:
The elderly as well as children are especially vulnerable to pedestrian accidents;
It is more likely for a pedestrian accident to occur after dark;
Many such accidents occur in small neighbourhoods and urban areas;

- Broken Bones
- Lacerations and Abrasions
