FOI Request - Compensation Claims
Under the Freedom of Information Act can I ask for the following information:
1. The amount of compensation that has been paid to motorists for road accidents over the last four years?
2. How much of that is for pothole-related damage? Ideally can I have that data year on year.
3. How many claims have been made? How many claims are still open and how many have the council admitted fault/liability?
I should prefer to receive these in electronic format at this email address.
It would be helpful if you were to provide any brief notes which might be necessary to understand the context of the information provided, although I recognise that you are not obliged to do this.
2. £112.50 2014/2015
3. 2012/2013 46 claims made/ 0 outstanding
2013/2014 19 claims made/ 0 outstanding
2014/2015 36 claims made/ 0 outstanding
2015/2016 32 claims made/ 4 still outstanding
The council never decide fault or liability. That decision is taken by our insurers.
