Claims if you have been injured on a public road as a result of poor weather conditions

With the recent storms that have struck the UK, many roads throughout the country have had to face the brunt of the damage, resulting many of them becoming unsafe for public use. It is the responsibility of local councils and road authority agencies to ensure that they reach appropriate levels of health and safety, so if you have been injured while on a faulty public road then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Anything from potholes to uneven surfaces can cause a serious incident, so if this is the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence.

What instances might I be eligible to make a claim?

If you have been injured on a public road during poor conditions, then you may be eligible to make a claim. Some instances where you may look to claim include:

·         Claims if you have slipped or tripped

·         Claims against a lack of road signposting

·         Claims against a poorly maintained road

·         Claims against a lack of visibility

·         Claims if you have broken a bone.

Who could be responsible in cases such as this?

It is the responsibility of either the council or road authority agency to ensure that the roads are safe for public use, so if you have been injured while on a public road then you could look to make a claim against either of these organisations. Whether you have tripped and injured yourself or your property has been damaged, you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, which is why a claim could benefit you.
