Edinburgh sue for damages


Roads in Edinburgh have lots of potholes and defects just like roads all over the rest of the UK. It is nothing unusual to read a headline that a pothole has caused an accident, sometimes a very serious one. If you’ve been injured after hitting a pothole, you could make an Edinburgh sue for damages claim.

The causes of potholes

Several things can cause potholes, some of them are:

  • Extreme weather variations.  Water can seep down below the road surface and freeze and a hot spell will cause quick thawing of this which will cause the water to loosen the asphalt
  • Contractors completing roadworks and patching the tarmac rather than resurfacing a full stretch, making the surface more likely to fall apart
  • Laying the asphalt in the wrong weather conditions – sometimes councils are under such pressure to lay a road they complete the work no matter what the weather, but if it is too hot or cold the tarmac does not settle properly and is more likely to develop potholes

An accident involving a pothole can be very nasty, and could well result in someone   making an Edinburgh sue for damages claim.

How to make an Edinburgh sue for damages claim

To be eligible to make a successful claim, your accident must first fit certain criteria.

  • You can only claim if you were not responsible for causing your accident. Potholes are the responsibility of local authorities so you will need the right legal help.
  • Any injuries you receive must be treated by a doctor.
  • A claim must be started within 3 years, but you can start one just as soon as you like after your accident.
