Can I claim compensation if hit by a car while crossing the road?

Yes. If you have been injured as a pedestrian due to the negligence of a motor vehicle such as a car, ute, truck or motorcycle, then you may be entitled to compensation.

However, if the accident was caused by you as the pedestrian because of negligence like ignoring “do not walk” signals at pedestrian crossings, it may be a bit more difficult.
