Slater and Gordon Lawyers handle more cycle accident injury claims than most other law firms in the UK, as we represent members of the public and members of the Cycling UK, the national cycling charity.
In order to establish liability on the part of the Highway Authority (in London the relevant London Borough Council) it is necessary to prove:
Highways authorities will almost always seek to avoid liability by relying upon their statutory defence under Section 58 of the Highways Act. They are able to rely on a Section 58 Defence if they can demonstrate that they had in place an adequate system of inspection and maintenance. The burden of proving an adequate inspection regime rests with the highway authority.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers can provide immediate legal representation and rehabilitation support anywhere in the UK.
