Badly maintained road surfaces and potholes are common causes of accidents which require an injury lawyer in Queensferry. Pedestrians, drivers, cyclists and motorbike riders can all suffer from the effects of badly maintained roads, sustaining severe injuries in accidents caused by the negligence of their local council or the Welsh Assembly Government.
What should I do if I have sustained injuries in an accident on the roads?
If you have sustained personal injuries due to the poor upkeep of the roads in Queensferry, you should take down as many details as you can so that you can hold the appropriate authority responsible for your injuries.
Useful details to note down following an accident include:
• The time and date of your accident
• The name of the road
• The location of the road
• The contact details of any witnesses to your accident
If it is safe for you to do so, you may also wish to use your phone to take photographic evidence of the road surface for use by your personal injury lawyer in Queensferry.
The information you collect at the scene of your accident could make all the difference to the success or failure of your road accident compensation claim. If you are able to present a strong body of evidence, it will make it harder for the local authority or Welsh Assembly Government to dispute the circumstances of your accident.
