Claims for a failure to adequately maintain private roads

Britain is fortunate enough to have some of the most advanced road networks in Europe today as councils and road authority agencies help ensure that they are constantly preserved to the highest standards. Private roads however are owned, run and maintained by either a private individual, organisation or company rather than the government so if a problem occurs on the road it is up to them to deal with it.

So if you were travelling to work and you become involved in an incident as a result of a poorly maintained private road, then you could look to make a claim for compensation to recover any damages you have incurred. If you believe that the individual or company has failed to maintain the standard of the roads then you are well within your right to make a claim against them for negligence.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have been affected by a poorly maintained private road then you could be eligible 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 faulty roads

·         Claims if your car has been damaged as a result of faulty roads

·         Claims against the owner of the road

·         Claims against a negligent driver

Who might you look to make a claim against?

If you have been left with injuries or your property has been damaged as a result of poorly maintained private roads then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are a number of people who could be at fault in this situation, but the most likely would be either the company or individual who owns the private road. It is their job to ensure the standard of the roads because a faulty road could cause damage or even result in a serious accident, which is why making a claim could be in your best interests.
