Information for Members of the public
If you have suffered personal injury or damage to your property as a result of actions by the council, you may consider making a claim. For the claim to be successful you will need to prove that the council has been negligent and has not done everything that is reasonable to protect you or your property. There is no automatic entitlement to compensation when something happens - the alleged incident may not have been the fault of the council.
You have six years from the date of the incident to claim for property damage and three years for personal injury claims.
If the claim relates to an incident on a footpath or a road, please contact Lancashire County Council which has responsibility for adopted highways within the Borough of South Ribble.
If you are a member of the public wanting to make an insurance claim against the Council, please contact us for a form to complete. You can call us on 01772 625625 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Insurance is a Shared Service between South Ribble Borough Council and Chorley Borough Council.
