Claiming compensation for a defective speed bump

Here in the UK we have some of the most advanced road networks and safety precautions throughout Europe and as such the chances of an accident occurring are quite slim in comparison. Unfortunately however, this isn’t always the case and you could be at risk of becoming involved in a traffic accident because of a defective speed bump. Speed bumps are an essential part of road safety and they do an effective job of slowing down traffic, but if they are poorly constructed or don’t meet industry standards, you could be entitled to make a claim.

If you have been left with an injury as a result of a defective speed bump, or your vehicle has become damaged, then making claim could be the best way of recouping any losses you have incurred. It is the responsibility of either the council or a road authority agency to uphold the standards of public roads, so if you have been involved in an accident and you believe it could have been avoided then you could look to make a claim against them for compensation.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have been left with an injury as a result of a defective speed bump then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some common examples where you may look to claim include:

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have chipped a tooth

·         Claims if you have been left concussed

·         Claims against a negligent road authority agency

Who could be at fault in this situation?

When it comes to making a successful claim for compensation it is important that you are able to prove that someone’s negligence has resulted in your injuries. In general, if you have been left suffering an injury as a result of a defective speed bump then you could look to make a claim against either the local council or a road authority agency whose job it was to install the speed bump. An incident such as this can be both costly and severe, as you could be left with whiplash or worse – so if you don’t want to suffer in silence a claim could be the best option for you.
