Specialist Knowledge And Support From Irwin Mitchell
Your council or local authority are responsible for maintaining health and safety standards in a wide range of public places to ensure that facilities are safe to use. When a local authority fails to provide an adequate service and protection against injuries, the consequences of any resulting injuries can be severe.
If you have been injured due to inadequate facilities, faulty equipment or poorly maintained public areas, Irwin Mitchell could help you make a claim against the council and secure the compensation you deserve.
Irwin Mitchell's expert lawyers have a wealth of experience in bringing claims against the council and will fight fearlessly to bring your claim to justice.
Handling Claims Against The Council With Expertise And Sensitivity
Your council has a legal responsibility to protect the public while they are on council property, whether that is a council office, a public path / highway, a park or a facility such as a council-run leisure centre. Amongst other claims, we have represented people affected by the following:
- Accidents due to poor road or pavement maintenance
- An accident in a playground, park, leisure centre, museum or swimming pool
- An accident at a school run by the local authority
If you have suffered an injury whilst in a public area, facility or in the street, or if your child has been injured whilst at a state school, it may be possible to make a claim against the council.
