Utility Roadworks & Compensation
Utility roadworks can have devastating effects on small businesses as they block shop frontages, restricting access and deterring clientelle from visiting the premises. This can result in heavy losses being sustained by your business, potentially threatening your ability to continue trading.
We have unparalleled expertise and experience of negotiating claims and obtaining compensation from the Utility Companies; having carved out a niche for ourselves within the industry. We act for many of the countries largest retails chains, as well as hundreds of small businesses.
With extensive knowledge of prevailing legislation and expertise in financial forecasting and modelling, we aim to ensure 100% of losses incurred are compensated.
We are often able to recover our costs from the Utility Companies leaving you with 100% of the compensation. Our services cost you nothing, win or lose.
Legislation allowing for compensation to be claimed from the Water Companies is contained within the Water Industry Act 1991.
The act allows any affected business to claim compensation where they can sufficiently demonstrate liability and evidence losses. Any losses must be fully evidenced and substantiated.
The process of forecasting sales and assessing loss is complex and time consuming and with most of the Water Companies employing specialists to negotiate on their behalf, it is often best to ensure you have professional representation.
The Legislation allowing claims against Gas Companies is contained within The Gas (Street Works) (Compensation of Small Businesses) Regulations 1996.
Compensation under these regulations is afforded only to small businesses, with several criteria having to be met in order to qualify. In addition, affected businesses must also meet the test of severe loss, having to demonstrate that losses exceed both £500 and 2.5% of the businesses annual turnover.
