    How to claim pier injury compensation


    The great British seaside is busier during the summer months than at any other time of the year. Kids are off school, parents are looking for some fresh sea air and the sun is (hopefully) shining. Yet there are dangers lurking at the beach, away from the chip shops, amusement arcades and ice cream stalls, and you could suffer serious injuries if you’re not careful.

    It seems like we are always hearing about injuries happening on piers across the country, and if you’ve been unlucky enough to be injured on a pier, whether on a family day out in Brighton or a long weekend on the east coast, you could make a claim for pier injury compensation.

    Better maintenance needed

    It could be that you’ve been injured after falling through a poorly-maintained, rotting pier into the water below, or even trapping your leg or ankle after boards give way. Loose boards or nails on a pier could cause a slip, trip or fall that could lead to serious injuries – you could even fall into the water and drown or be seriously injured.

    It’s usually up to the local council to ensure that piers are well-maintained and safe for members of the public to use, and if they have failed in this respect and you’ve been injured, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim pier injury compensation, on a 100% no win, no fee basis.

    Other accidents on piers could be caused by careless members of the public – for example, your child could be knocked into the water by a dog off its lead or somebody whizzing along the pier on their bike with no regard for pedestrians. Or a hand railing could give way, leaving a child plunging into the water below.

    Injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to broken bones, head injuries and even drowning fatalities could occur, and we’re here to help you claim the compensation you deserve if you or a member of your family has suffered.

    Making a full recovery

    Of course, we hope you make a full recovery from your injuries, but even if you do, it could mean months off work as broken bones heal or you undergo treatment. Give Accident Advice Helpline a ring within three years of your accident and we’ll be able to help you make a claim for personal injury compensation, whether you’ve made a full recovery or are suffering ongoing pain after your accident. Call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 today for confidential, no-obligation advice.
