We're Here To Help With Your Highways Injury Claims
If you have had an accident as a result of a road or pavement not being maintained properly, it is possible to make a personal injury claim either through the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB), or the body responsible for roads or pavements. However, Highway claims can be the most difficult to deal with, as liability can be extremely difficult to prove, so that’s why it’s vital to choose a solicitor who knows what they’re doing. In the UK there are several bodies who have a statutory duty to maintain and keep safe our public Highways, roads, pavements and footpaths, namely the Highways agency, Highway authorities (usually county councils), District and sometimes even Parish councils. However, the Highways Act 1980 also gives these bodies a defence to claims, so it generally comes down to making sure the evidence of proof is strongly in your favour. These cases usually need persistence and patience and fortunately we have those in abundance!
