    Compensation for high street accidents


    Your local high street is probably not the sort of place you’d ever think about being involved in an accident. Shopping for the latest fashions, meeting friends for lunch or picking up groceries for the week ahead, we’re all so wrapped up in what we are doing that we often don’t notice the hazards that the average high street holds. Hazards such as:

    • Potholes
    • Cracked or loose paving stones
    • Broken kerbs
    • Loose manhole covers
    • Loose awnings or shutters

    Any of these things have the potential to cause high street accidents, at any time. But if you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, there’s the possibility you could claim personal injury compensation.

    Accident Advice Helpline has been recommended by Dame Esther Rantzen, our patron and TV personality, for our excellent customer service. So trust us with your personal injury claim and find out today how much you could be entitled to claim by taking the 30-second test on our website.

    Injuries sustained on the high street

    There are a wide variety of injuries which could be sustained in high street accidents – it all depends what type of accident you are involved in. Slips, trips and falls on cracked or loose paving stone or potholes could lead to strain, sprains, broken bones or even head injuries.

    You might even be unlucky enough to be injured in an underground explosion caused by a faulty gas main or electrical fire or a building collapse which causes the street to open up underneath you. In accidents like this, crush injuries, broken bones and more serious injuries such as a head or brain injury are not uncommon.

    In stormy weather, the high street can become a dangerous place as loose awnings or shutters have the potential to fall from height and strike passers-by, causing serious injury.

    However you’ve been injured, there is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get the compensation you deserve.
