The Water Company initially rejected all claims for roadworks citing that side roads and access remained available. The financial assessment was not taken into consideration.
We liaised with the Local Authority and our research team put together a plan of the works and a detailed report of the traffic management in place.
Whilst only limited case law exists for claims of this nature, key legal precedents were drawn from parallel legislation in support of the claim, which demonstrated exactly why the Water Company held liability.
Following an admission of liability, a detailed financial analysis demonstrating the adverse changes in our client’s trading patterns was submitted.
This resulted in a positive decision from the Water Company with an agreed settlement in excess of £20,000.
