    Most common high street accidents


    The high street is an important symbol of traditional British culture. Every town has a high street, and thousands of us visit local shops, restaurants, and cafés every week. If you’re taking a trip to the high street, and you’re looking forward to a day out, the last thing you want is to return home nursing an injury. If you’ve been injured as a result of high street accidents, you may be able to claim compensation for your trip or fall accident. Most of the time, we are able to shop, drink, and dine without any issues at all, but accidents do happen.

    The most common high street accidents

    There are lots of different types of accident that may occur on the high street. Whether you’re shopping, or you’re catching up with friends or relatives, it’s wise to be wary of potential hazards. Here are some of the most common high street accidents:

    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Slipping on wet floors inside shops and cafés
    • Injuries caused by falling objects in shops
    • Road traffic and pedestrian accidents

    The type of injuries that occur as a result of high street accidents vary hugely. You could end up with cuts and grazes from a minor trip or life-threatening head and spinal injuries from a fall or a road traffic accident on the high street.

    If you’ve been injured on the high street, seek medical attention as a priority. When you feel able to, write down what happened, and ask anybody who saw the incident if they would mind providing their contact details and giving a statement. If you have superficial injuries, or you wish to highlight problem, such as broken paving stones, it’s a good idea to take photographs.

    Claiming compensation for an accident

    If you’ve been injured in a public place, and you were not to blame for the accident, you may have a case for public liability compensation. If the accident happened within the last three years and you have evidence to show that somebody else’s negligence was the cause, call Accident Advice helpline or take our 30-second eligibility test online. We have an experienced team of personal injury lawyers, and we aim to take the stress out of the compensation claims process. The majority of our clients never go to court, and we can hold consultations via the telephone. If you’re worried about the cost of making a public place accident claim, we operate solely on a no-win, no-fee basis.
