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 6 years from the date of the incident to claim for property damage and 3 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 Chorley.
