If you have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of your local authority, learn how to make an injury claim with our specialist no win no fee solicitors. 
In and around our local communities, there is a large responsibility on local councils and local authorities to ensure the health and safety of everyone. 
 
However, when this does not happen, and you or your loved ones have been seriously injured in an accident that was not your fault, and was caused by the negligence of your local authority, you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim for financial compensation against your local authority with our specialist no win no fee personal injury solicitors. 
 
If you are injured in public, or out and about in your community, you might not be aware that you are eligible to make a personal injury claim, or that your injuries were caused by the negligence of the local authority. Read on to learn more about making a serious injury claim against your local council. 

What type of accidents can I make a claim against a local authority for? 

Much like any other personal injury claim, a personal injury claim against the council is a 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- 
 
Road traffic accident caused by a pothole 
Cycling accident caused by hitting a pothole 
Claims against the council for injuries suffered in road traffic accidents due to incorrect or misleading road markings 

What to do after an accident caused by the local authority: 

When you are injured in an accident in public, you might not know what steps to take afterwards in order to make a no win no fee personal injury claim for financial compensation. 
 
However, there are steps that you can take after your accident in order to help with making a future personal injury claim against the council or local authority: 
 
1. Seek medical attention for your injuries- if you require medical attention after your injuries, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. This can help to aid in your recovery, and the medical notes created as a part of these appointments can be used in a future personal injury claim against the council. 
 
2. Report the accident to your council or local authority- an important part of validating your accident is to report the accident to the council in an official report. 
 
3. Take photographs of the accident site and your injuries- if you are considering making a personal injury claim against the council, it is always a good idea to have as much photographic evidence as possible to support your claim. One part of this is to take photographs of the site at which you were injured, and the specific cause of the accident, such as the pothole or the broken pavement slab. On top of this, it is always useful to take regular photographs of your injuries, ideally in the form of a personal injury diary. See more on this here. 
 
4. Get in touch with a specialist personal injury solicitor- after you are involved in an accident, and choose to make a personal injury claim against the council, you should reach out to a personal injury solicitor specialising in claims against the council as soon as possible. Once you reach out to a personal injury solicitor such as MG Legal, our team will get to work on building your NO WIN NO FEE personal injury claim against the council as soon as possible, in a simple and straightforward way. 
 
While you could still be able to make a successful personal injury claim without taking these steps, they can help to provide invaluable evidence to your personal injury claim, and significantly assist your injury solicitor with filing your successful personal injury claim, and achieving your financial compensation. 

What can I claim for in a personal injury claim against the council? 

If you have suffered personal injury as a result of the council's negligence, then MG Legal’s personal injury solicitors will ensure that you receive the maximum amount of personal injury compensation. Part of our job is to ensure that you are not out of pocket in any way as a result of your injuries. Below is a list of some of the damages we will claim for you as a part of your no win no fee personal injury claim against the council: 
 
compensation for pain and suffering 
compensation for psychological injury 
payment for ongoing medical treatment, and any other care that is required 
loss of earnings 
loss of future earnings if you are unable to work or return to the same level of work 
travel expenses, to and from the hospital, or any treatment provider 
the cost of adapting your home, if your injuries require your home to be changed 
compensation for psychological damage 
 
You can also make a personal injury claim for your injured children, someone who has died, or a person who doesn't have capacity to make their own claim. Where somebody has died, the family can claim for bereavement and funeral expenses, or for the cost of looking after dependents in their personal injury claim against the council. In some circumstances a claim can also be made for psychiatric injury suffered by a close family member.
