Solicitors in Bedfordshire have acted in cases that have set precedents in English Law, particularly in the case of Bedfordshire Police Authority v David Constable and others. This case visited the Riot (Damages) Act 1886, under which every police authority is liable to pay compensation to third parties for damage to or theft of property caused by ‘any persons riotously and tumultuously assembled together’. However, the authority’s insurance company refused to pay out because the compensation payable under the 1886 Act wasn’t ‘damages’ within the meaning of the policy.

However, the High Court confirmed that the claim was covered as the obligation of the police to pay compensation under the Act was the sort of liability which the parties would have expected to be covered by a public liability policy. Whichever area of law you need assistance with, it is complicated, and the use of specialist solicitors in Bedfordshire is advisable.
