Here to offer you expert legal advice for your claims
Local authorities are usually responsible for our roads, for making sure they stay in a good state of repair, and do not cause any accidents, where victims would then have the opportunity to claim pothole compensation.
We all know this is not the case though and that some roads are in a pretty bad state.
There are potholes and bad road surfaces all over the country, and the consequences of them can be dire.
Two wheeled contraptions and pothole compensation
This is particularly the case for two wheeled vehicles, bicycles and motorbikes.
Riders of either can be thrown from the bike and sustain very serious injuries. It could be that they are thrown into the path of other traffic that is unable to stop in time, or if it happened on a bridge they could be thrown over the edge to whatever awaits them below.
Just these two scenarios could cause the death of a rider, and there are many more situations where death or serious injury could occur, because of potholes and bad road surfaces, and this is exactly when innocent victims should claim pothole compensation.
The purpose of pothole compensation
Compensation is meant as recognition of the pain and suffering you have been caused through no fault of your own, and it is paid for all types of injuries from any type of accident, providing someone else was to blame.
As long as the injuries you sustained were severe enough to need medical attention, you may be able to make a personal injury claim.
The only other point to remember is that there are time limits on making a claim, and in the case of accidents it is 3 years from the date the accident happened.
If you do not start your claim within this time frame, it will become time barred and your compensation will be lost.
