Pages On: Pothole Injuries

Potholes are a blight on road users and pedestrians alike. Not only can they damage our property, they can cause serious injuries in the form of trip and fall accidents. Most councils have their own criteria for assessing the need to fill potholes. However, budget constraints can play a hand in the maintenance of them. If a council has overlooked a significant pothole that has caused you injury, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation from them — if they are liable for the accident.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
