Have you been injured because of potholes in the road?
Unfortunately, the state of the roads and carriageways in the United Kingdom is becoming a major concern for drivers and road users. As traffic increases, the roads are under even more pressure and continued use can cause damage to the surface of the carriageway. In addition to this, bad weather can worsen the condition of the roads and may cause large potholes to appear. As well as damaging your vehicle, these potholes could affect your steering or may even result in you losing control of your vehicle which could obviously result in a serious accident occurring. If you’ve been involved in an accident and you believe that the condition of the road caused the incident, it is worth considering making a claim for compensation. We have our own personal injury claim solicitors in Deganwy who could help you.
Could personal injury claim solicitors in Deganwy help you?
If your local council is responsible for fixing or maintaining the road and they have failed to do so, personal injury claim solicitors in Deganwy could help you to make a claim against them. If you can prove that their neglect caused your accident to occur, they should be held liable and you may be able to obtain compensation from them.
Similarly, if a company has carried out work on the road but it hasn’t been done properly, they could be held responsible for the incident and you may be able to make a claim against them.
Have you collected any evidence?
If you have any evidence to support your claim, it could help speed up the process of obtaining compensation. However, if you were seriously hurt, you may have been unable to collect evidence at the time of the incident. If you are able to return to the scene of the accident and take photographs of the carriageway or the potholes which caused the incident, this could help you to obtain compensation.
Similarly, if there were witnesses to the incident, it would be helpful if you have their contact details so that they can be asked to provide a statement. Alternatively, you may be able to obtain CCTV footage of the incident.
If you haven’t been able to collect any evidence, there’s no need to worry as we may be able to assist you with this.
