    The Crossrail tunnel under the Thames, between Plumstead and North Woolwich was completed at the beginning of February 2014, although it is not open yet. North Woolwich is currently connected to Woolwich itself by the Woolwich Ferry and the Woolwich foot tunnel.

    If you had an accident in North Woolwich, in the foot tunnel or on the ferry, for example, you may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors North Woolwich so that you can file a personal injury compensation claim.

    Accidents in the street

    The most common types of accident are slips, trips and falls, as they can happen virtually anywhere. If you trip over a damaged kerb stone in the street, for example, you may be able to make a claim for your injuries from the local authority which is responsible for the repair and maintenance of roads and streets. If you tripped over a manhole cover which had not been properly replaced, then you could possibly make a claim against the utilities company who own it.

    You should inform the police if you have an accident in the street and they should make a report and tell the appropriate body about your accident. Call an ambulance and ask for names and contact details of any witnesses. Also, if you are able, take photographs of the scene of the accident and your injuries, so that these may be used as supporting evidence for your claim.
