Dear Ms Partridge

To enable us to process your request we require some clarification.

Does this solely relates to damage, i.e vehicles, or whether it includes
injury only claims. If injury details are also required is it just
compensation paid or do they require legal fees.

Once we have received your response we will be able to process your
request.

Regards

Dear Telford and Wrekin Council,

Reference Number TWC-48829

Thanks for requesting clarification. We prefer these figures to include compensation for damage caused to property or person adding in any additional costs for things like solicitor fees. If this is not possible then please kindly provide the data anyway and state what is included.

Much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Gemma Partridge
