Can I claim against my Local Council for injury?
Local councils and the Highways Agency are trusted to keep roads and pavements in a good condition. Unfortunately, this is a huge task, and faulty or badly maintained sections of paving and dangerous potholes exist all over the UK.
If you have had an accident and sutained an injury as the result of your local authority or council’s negligence in not maintaining the pavement, or the Highways Agency in respect of roads, we could help you claim compensation for your injury and you may be able to make a No Win No Fee claim.
How to Make a Claim
When you get in touch with us about your claim we offer a free initial consultation where we will discuss the merits of your claim and how we could take your claim forward and get you the compensation you deserve.
For a successful compensation claim we need to be able to prove that the incident occurred and that someone else was negligent.
To evaluate your claim we will need to know:
- Where and when the injury was sustained.
- What injuries you sustained.
- Were there any witnesses or CCTV to aid your claim?
- Was the accident reported?
- Whether you require ongoing treatment or rehabilitation?
Local authorities are legally responsible for making sure that all roads, pavements and even bridle paths are properly maintained and kept clear of defects that might cause accidents.
Where there has been negligence by the council or local authority, you have every right to get in touch with us so that one of our team of experts can conduct a free, no-obligation consultation with you.
The local council is usually responsible for the maintenance of pavements and public footpaths. Our solicitors will identify the council responsible for where your accident took place and gather evidence to support your claim to help prove if the council or local authority didn’t follow correct inspection and maintenance plans
How much will my claim be worth?
As with most other personal injury claims there is no set rule for how much compensation you might receive for an injury sustained whilst aboard.
The amount of settlement will depend on the extent of your injuries, how it has impacted your life and how much time a full recovery will take.
However, in addition to damages for any injury, pain and suffering, you may also be able to claim for any loss of earnings as well as for the cost of any medical treatment or rehabilitation that may be required and any additional transport costs.
Our personal injury solicitors are very experienced in this area, and will aim to get you the maximum compensation available for your injury.
