Compensation for negligent road management

Although in general the majority of road traffic accidents are caused by road users, there are some examples where this simply isn’t the case and poor road resurfacing and management can lead to a number of road incidents and associated problems. It’s the responsibility by law of the council to ensure that the appropriate road management procedures take place and this includes repairing roads and undertaking upgrades as they are needed, if your council fails to do this then you could consider a compensation claim.

If you do find yourself the victim of poor road management then there are a number of areas where you may consider making a compensation claim and your claim here can include compensation for a loss of income or any associated pain and suffering that you might have been through as a result.
