Do you need to contact ‘no win, no fee’ Coedpoeth solicitors after being injured due a dangerous road surface?
Whilst most people assume that roads are always coated in tarmac, this isn’t always true. Although many road surfaces are coated in tarmac, contractors may use different materials depending on the type of road that is being built. Whilst tarmac may be appropriate for use on roads in residential streets, other materials may be used for dual carriageways or motorways. When vehicles will by travelling at high speeds, alternative materials may provide better grip which could make the road safer.
However, in order for the road to remain safe, the surface must be monitored and repaired when necessary. If over-use or bad weather causes potholes to appear, local councils and highways agencies may need to act quickly to stop the road becoming too dangerous. In some cases, busy roads may even need to be closed until they can be repaired effectively.
If road surfaces are simply left to deteriorate, they could become extremely dangerous. Large potholes, for example, could cause vehicles to swerve and drivers may struggle to regain control. If this were to happen, they could easily slide into another lane and collide with other traffic which could obviously result in a serious road traffic accident occurring.
If you’re hurt in a collision or a road traffic accident, you may simply assume that another driver is to blame. In such cases, you may seek to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Coedpoeth compensation claim against them. However, if their conduct was caused by a dangerous road surface, it could be the council or highways agency which is to blame. If so, you may need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Coedpoeth compensation claim against them, rather than another driver.
