Over the past 5 years The Department of Regional Development has had to pay out more than £3.5 million in compensation as a result of defective roads and footpaths. The figure includes compensation for both personal injury and damage to vehicles.
Over the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the number of compensation claims arising out of defective roads. It is thought that the vast majority of the compensation claims are a result of massive cutbacks in the roads budget.
It however really is a false economy as in reality much of the savings have had to be used to pay compensation to people who have been injured as a result of a trip or a road traffic accident.
