    North West Leicestershire car accident


    Personal Injury Solicitors in North West Leicestershire

    If you’ve been injured in a North West Leicestershire car accident, as the result of unintentionally/unavoidably driving over a pothole, you will be legally and morally entitled to launch a claim for compensation.

    Those pesky road works

    Although all motorists tend to carp and complain when they get held up by road works, they are not being done for fun. It tends to mean either that new services are being laid, or the road surface is in need of some sort of repair.

    Reporting potholes to the Highways Agency

    If you discover a pothole when you’re out driving, you should make a note of the location and the date, and report it/them to the Highways Agency (HA). The HA treats potholes seriously and is programmed to deal with them as soon as possible. When most potholes appear (in the winter months), the HA request you contact them by telephone rather than email, as this helps them to deal with the problem quickly.

    If you’re injured you should always employ your own injury claim solicitor

    If your car is damaged, and you also sustain a personal injury due to the presence of a pothole, you must report it to the HA, but we also recommend that you employ the services of a good personal injury claim lawyer like us here at AAH.

    Seeking maximum compensation

    It may not be in your best interests to accept a direct offer of compensation from the HA. Their natural tendency will be to keep their costs as low as possible, whereas any injury claim solicitor you employ to act on your behalf, will always seek to maximise the amount of compensation you will be awarded.
