Claiming against the council

As one governing body which we tend to have a great deal to do with, the council is responsible for maintaining many of our public services, roads and facilities to the highest standards possible. Basic taxes, rates and council tax are all paid to ensure that these services meet the standards that we have come to expect and the council is expected to spend the money as they see necessary to ensure that we are living in a safe and secure environment.

Unfortunately, from time to time this doesn’t always happen and in some situations council facilities and areas can become somewhat run down and damaged as a result – and this can have a direct impact on our health and well-being. If you have been injured through council negligence – perhaps through a poorly maintained road, service or piece of equipment – then you could consider a compensation claim.

How could I sustain injuries through council negligence?

There are many circumstances where you could find yourself looking at a potential claim against the council for negligence. Some common examples of where this might occur includes:

  • Injuries sustained through poorly maintained roads
  • Injuries sustained through poorly maintained footpaths
  • Injuries which occur in council buildings
  • Injuries which are sustained in a playground
  • Injuries sustained through poorly maintained council facilities.

Where could I direct my compensation claim towards the council?

If you feel that the council has been negligent towards you and that you have sustained injuries as a result then you could consider making a compensation claim against them to cover any costs that you have incurred. The council is responsible for maintaining any Government land and property in addition to public services and buildings, if you have been injured in one of these locations through their negligence then you could be eligible to make a claim.
