What is a personal injury claim against the council? 

Much like any other personal injury claim, a personal injury claim against the council is a legal claim in which you obtain financial compensation for an injury that you have suffered. In personal injury claims against the council specifically, the injury must have been caused by negligence on the part of the council. 
 
Some examples of these are- 
 
Claims against the council for potholes causing road traffic accidents 
Claims against the council for personal injury caused by slips, trips and falls due to potholes 
Compensation claims against local councils caused by poor maintenance of playgrounds and play area equipment 
Claims against the council for injuries suffered in road traffic accidents due to incorrect or misleading road markings

If you have been injured due to negligence on behalf of the council or local authority, then you can make a claim for financial compensation through a personal injury claim.
