    Solicitor from Corfe Castle


    If you have been thrown off your bicycle due to a pothole in the road, you may need the services of a solicitor from Corfe Castle. It does not matter whether you use your bicycle for practical purposes such as shopping, for keeping fit or simply for pleasure, you expect to be able to cycle along the roads in safety. The problem is that more and more potholes seem to be emerging and sometimes you have no other option but to cycle through them.

    For instance, some potholes are just around a blind bend and cannot be seen until you have hit them. The point here is that councils are supposed to keep their roads in a state of decent repair. This means that if you are hurt because your bicycle hit a pothole, you may be able to claim compensation for it.

    Claiming compensation means providing evidence that you have been in an accident caused by a third party being negligent. If at all possible, if you have had an accident because of a pothole, you need to take a photograph of it and measure its length, width and depth.

    Make sure that your measurements are accurate because they will be checked at a later stage. You also need to take photographs of the area around it so that you know the exact pothole that caused the problem. This will also highlight if the pothole is in a potential danger spot such as not near street lighting. Once you have done that, you should make the council aware of your accident.
