    Ways To Get In Touch With Your Local Council – Injury Claim in Newark-on-Trent

    Getting in touch with your council regarding a number of things can be difficult from time to time. Generally your council will have one set of offices which deals with everything to do with your local area, from council tax and benefits to your injury claim in Newark-on-Trent. This means that the call centre staff may be overwhelmed with calls from time to time, and you may not get the response you want when you want it. If you have had an accident or injury which you feel was the fault of your council then you may want to make an injury claim in Newark-on-Trent. An injury may be the fault of the council if it is the result of:

    • Broken/cracked pavements
    • Broken or faulty railings, gates, kerbs
    • Playgrounds which have not been maintained properly
    • Areas with a lot of refuse or dangerous materials left around

    Anything that the council is charged with maintaining can cause an injury if it has not been maintained properly. In this case you are within your rights to make an injury claim in Newark-on-Trent. Here are some ways to get in touch.

    Phone

    You can find out your local council’s phone number either online or in the phone book. You will usually go through a central switchboard and have to find the right department there. As mentioned before, though, these call centres can often be overwhelmed and you may have an extremely long wait time or not be able to get the answers you need during your phone call.

    Write

    You can write to your local council with the details of your injury and the amount you want to claim in compensation. Look online and do some research before you write your letter to ensure that you have included everything you need to (including why you feel that your injury is the fault of the council). Make sure to include plenty of contact details so that the appropriate person can get back to you as soon as they can. You may find that you have to wait some time to get a response if you contact the council in this way.

    Walk In

    If you know where your local council offices are then you may want to walk in and ask to speak to someone in charge. Again, you may have to wait some time, but this option does at least give you the chance to speak to someone in person and get a response straight away. You may still be asked to write in with your information though.
