Council - Insurance Claims
If you believe that you have suffered personal injury or
property damage as a direct result of a negligent act on behalf of
Scarborough Borough Council and you wish to pursue a claim for
compensation then please print and return the Insurance claim form.
We must advise you that there is no automatic right to
compensation. It is necessary for you to demonstrate that the
council has been negligent and that you have suffered an injury or
loss. All claims are individually assessed and investigated,
in conjunction with the council's Insurer, to enable a decision on
liability to be reached.
The council takes seriously its responsibility for safeguarding
the welfare of its residents and visitors. The council also
has a duty to ensure that the council tax payers are protected from
unnecessary costs due to fraud and it may share information
relating to claims with other organisations and public bodies.
