According to data obtained by the East Grinstead Courier and Observer through a freedom of information request, West Sussex County Council was held liable for accidents that resulted in the body granting a seven-figure amount of damages.
For instance, the largest single award was £71,900 to an individual who sustained a serious dental injury at a school, while £57,716 was granted to an individual left disabled after they fell on a toilet floor.
Meanwhile, the authority also awarded more than £45,000 to someone who fractured two bones in their leg in a fall and £53,566 to a person who tripped on a pavement and broke their arm and shoulder.
