CouncilClaims.co.uk is the UK’s leading website that specialises in helping people recover compensation for injuries caused by council negligence. All of our solicitors have vast experience in this area of the law and are happy to provide you with free legal advice. So if you have been injured in an accident, and you believe a local authority was at fault, contact us today to discuss your claim.
The most common accident types that we help people with are as follows:
Trips on pavements
Trips caused by pavement defects such as potholes and raised or wobbly paving stones make up a high percentage of our workload. A sudden fall on a hard pavement can cause significant injuries, with the elderly and young children being particularly at risk.
Accidents at work
Councils throughout the UK employ over 1 million people in a diverse range of job types. Although some roles may be considered as inherently more dangerous than others, all working environments can pose the risk of accidents and injuries when the proper health and safety measures are not observed.
Accidents in council owned properties
Councils are responsible for maintaining thousands of properties throughout the UK. If they neglect their responsibility, leaving a hazardous situation that puts people at risk of injury, they can potentially be held liable for subsequent accidents.
The above situations are some of the most common that we deal with, but we can also help under many other circumstances where council negligence leads to a person suffering an injury.
