Claims against damaged roads as a result of poor weather conditions

Although you may not realise it, the weather can play an integral role in the degrading of roads throughout the UK and with the recent storms which have attacked the country it has left them in dangerous conditions. We are fortunate enough to have some of the most advanced road networks throughout Europe, many of which are maintained to the highest standards, but sadly this isn’t always the case and you could end up being involved in an incident as a result of negligence. If this has affected you then making a claim for compensation could be the best way to recoup any losses you have incurred.

What circumstances can a claim be made?

If you have been left needing hospital treatment as a result of damaged roads, then you could look to seek compensation. There are a number of instances where you might look to claim, including:

·         Claims against a negligent road authority agency

·         Claims if you have damaged muscle/ligaments

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left concussed

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged.

Who could be at fault in this situation?

An unsafe road surface is unacceptable in the UK; such is the risk that it poses to pedestrians, so if you can prove that their actions have resulted in your injury then you could recoup any damages you have incurred. In general, if you find that you have been left with injuries as a result of a damaged road then you could look to make a claim against a road authority agency or local council. If you believe that their actions have been negligent and your health has been put at risk as a result, then you could look to seek compensation from them.
