    Compensation for street hole injuries


    When contractors are carrying out roadworks, you’ll often find holes appearing in your street – but these are usually surrounded by warning signs and barriers, covered over when there are no workers on site. Street hole injuries could occur if no warning signs or barriers are used, or if workers fail to cover over holes at night. Pedestrians could easily stumble into a hole and suffer severe injuries. Street hole injuries could even occur due to structural issues in building basements. A structural collapse below ground could lead to a hole opening up in the pavement at any time, and passers-by could be injured.

    If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident involving a hole in the street, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim the compensation you deserve. Our expert personal injury advisors will listen and offer confidential, no-obligation advice, whatever the circumstances of your accident. So you don’t have to suffer in silence, however, you’ve been injured.

    Serious or minor injuries?

    Street hole injuries could range from minor injuries such as cuts and bruises to serious, life-changing injuries, such as:

    • Head injuries and brain injury
    • Crush injuries – these could be caused if rubble falls on you after you have fallen into a hole
    • Broken bones, often caused by a slip or trip involving a smaller hole
    • Spinal injuries after a fall from height
    • Neck injuries
    • Facial injuries

    If you’re seriously injured, you’ll need to spend time in hospital for treatment and to make a full recovery, and that means taking time off work. If you’re not working, you’re not earning, affecting your family financially. A personal injury settlement could help you cover those household bills and compensate you for your pain and suffering. Since 2000, we’ve helped hundreds of people claim compensation for injuries caused by street holes – so why not be the next person to make a successful claim?

    You deserve compensation

    It’s easy to blame yourself for accidents, but if a hole opens up in the street and you fall into it, it’s easy to see that somebody else is at fault, whether that’s the local council or the owner of the building responsible for the structural collapse. You deserve to claim personal injury compensation, so call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today and find out how easy it is to make a claim. Our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, giving you one less thing to worry about.
