Insurance claims submitted by third parties against the Council are handled by the Insurance Section.
Making a claim does not automatically entitle you to compensation for damage or injuries. The basis for the claim is that there has been fault on the part of the Council. It is therefore necessary for you to prove that the Council is legally liable for your loss.
