Claims Against a Local Authority
A claim for an accident that occurs on council owned property is known as a public liability claim. They are handled by Local Councils and you may be entitled to make a claim under this heading if you slip, trip or fall on a public road or pavement, or if you are injured by objects on public property such as fences, steps or even falling rocks.
Local Councils, which are sometimes referred to as Public Authorities, are under a duty to ensure that the areas which fall under their jurisdiction are in a safe condition and kept free from any obstacles. If you have been injured in an accident such as this Beor Wilson Lloyd have a team of highly skilled solicitors in place who can assist you in bringing a claim for compensation against the local authority.
