If you’re hoping to make a claim for Glasgow City compensation, it’s possible that you, or someone you know, have suffered an injury while in the City Centre. Although anyone can be responsible for an injury which occurs in Glasgow, as there are lots of public spaces in the area, it’s possible that the council are responsible for the harm that you’ve suffered.
Glasgow City compensation
If your injury took place in a council run area, such as the town square or a local park, you might find that the council are liable for your injuries. Providing you can show that your injuries were not your fault, you may be able to claim Glasgow City compensation from your local council.
If the council installed facilities but didn’t maintain them, you could make a claim for Glasgow City compensation if this led to your injury. One example of this is children’s playgrounds. Although the local council usually installs these, sometimes they fail to keep them properly maintained. Over time the facilities may become worn or damaged, and they could pose a significant health and safety risk.
If the council have neglected facilities or they have failed to act when notified of a potential danger, they could face serious consequences, in addition to having to pay you Glasgow City compensation.
Of course, if it was another individual or a private company who caused your injuries, you could still obtain compensation, but you would need to make a claim against them, rather than the council. Although this won’t necessarily make it more difficult for you to obtain compensation, you do need to make sure that you identify exactly what or who caused your injuries if you hope to make a successful claim.
