Loss of earnings

Who do I contact for loss of earnings please .

Work is going outside my drive and unable to go and do my jobs today,they never knocked on the door to ask if we wanted to move our vehicles or nothing.

I'm self employed locksmith and get emergency calls and today I'm losing money because of you .

Please advise.

If your gates are being obstructed you should call the local authority.

did you actually speak to them to provide access?
however, there is no requirement to provide loss of earnings due to streetworks that are council approved.

you could try taking it to court but you'll end up spending more in solicitors fees than what you probablt lost in work, and you would be unlikely to win any such case.

Re: Loss of earnings

Why didn't you challenge the workmen when they first arrived? If anyone started work outside my gates I would insist on getting my car out and parked it in the road.  Even if they had started digging they could have put covers across the hole while you drove over it.

Re: Loss of earnings

It’s always best to challenge people about problems at the time, it’s a nightmare to get sorted out afterwards. Just look at the number of people on the board who say my hub is in the wrong place or the cable is too short. Easily rectified at the time, costly afterwards.

Re: Loss of earnings

society seems to be about complaining in public about something after it has happened, rather than just trying to resolve the issue there and then with polite intelligent discussion.

it's the "where there's blame there's claim" breed.
