Scottish Police Forces Pressed To Release Accident Claims Figures
Police forces in Scotland this week were put under pressure from Freedom of Information to release its figures relating to the amount of legal fees and compensation they have paid out in in injury and accident claims.
Strathclyde Police Paid Out Over £25,000 In Compensation Claims
Strathclyde Police, Scotland’s second largest police force paid more than £255,000 in compensation over the year 2008. This relates to the amount paid out from the collisions their police vehicles had, mainly with other cars but also with trees, parked cars and walls. In comparison Lothian and Borders police force spent over £114,000 in compensation and repairs to other vehicles.
Northern Constabulary Force claimed that even though they paid out over £143,000 that these figures are not really a true reflection of reality. They went onto add that matters are dealt with between insurance companies and there is no separate breakdown available for repairs, compensation and legal costs.
