Claiming compensation for an injury caused by inadequate road signage

When it comes to making a successful claim for compensation it is important that you are able to prove that negligence on behalf of another was at fault, so if you are unfortunate enough to become involved in an incident as the result of a poorly signposted hazard you could be entitled to make a claim. Hazardous items can often go unnoticed to people who aren’t looking for them, so if there is a lack of a signpost which acknowledges there is one there you could be involved in a serious accident. If you are affected by this in any way then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, which is why making a claim for compensation could be a great way of recouping any damages you have incurred.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have been injured as a result of inadequate road signage then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some examples of where you may wish to make a claim include:

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of poor signposting

·         Claims if your property has been damaged

·         Claims if you have suffered permanent injuries

·         Claims if you have been left with brain/head injuries.

Who might you look to make a claim against?

In general, if you are looking to make a claim for compensation as a result of being injured by poor road signage then you would either take it up with the local council or a road authority agency whose job it was to adequately maintain the area. It is their responsibility to ensure that the signposting is fit for purpose and alerts drivers to the condition of the road, so if you feel that this has not been the case and your health has been put at risk then a claim could be the best option for you. If there is a hazard which could potentially result in your injury and you aren’t notified by it with correct signposting, then this can create a very serious issue.
