Do your local council owe you Glenrothes compensation?
As our local councils are often responsible for maintaining our roads, pavement and public areas, they can often face claims for Glenrothes compensation if an accident or injury occurs. As recent bad weather has damaged many roads in the United Kingdom and accidents have occurred as a result, it’s possible that councils may even see an increase in the number of claims for Glenrothes compensation.
If you consider the number of places in your local area which are open to the public, it becomes evident just how much liability local our councils’ face. If they don’t maintain public places or ensure that people’s safety is guaranteed, they can face costly compensation claims as a result. Worse still – if the council are aware of a potential hazard, such as broken or cracked pavements and they take no action, they could face serious consequences if someone is hurt as a result.
If you’ve been hurt whilst walking down the road or whilst in a public area and you suffer an injury, it’s possible that you could make a claim against the council for Glenrothes compensation, providing you can show that they were at fault.
If, for example, someone was to assault you on the road, you wouldn’t be able to make a claim against the council just because the incident happened in a public area. However, if you were injured because the area hadn’t been maintained, the council could be liable and you could make a successful claim for Glenrothes compensation against them.
You could even find that you suffer an injury on your own property because of the local council. As councils do need to access our properties from time to time in order to carry out necessary works, claims can arise as a result. If the work is carried out improperly or the property is left in a dangerous state and you’re hurt as a result, it’s possible that you could make a claim for Glenrothes compensation.
