    It’s likely that the UK will start to experience increasingly severe weather events as global warming takes hold. Perhaps surprisingly to some, warm summers won’t be the only thing to worry about as the Earth’s weather systems change. On top of balmier holiday seasons, climate change will also bring harsher winters. We might see extended cold snaps, or more of the type of flooding parts of the country experienced in early 2014.

    This will be likely to present many challenges for a country that is not used to dealing with this type of thing. If you go to a country such as Norway, you’ll see that things carry on pretty much as near to normal as they can, even after a blizzard that’s left a metre of snow on the road. In the UK, everything seems to seize up as soon as there’s a slight smattering of the white stuff.

    Harsher winters will be particularly hard on our roads and pavements, which aren’t in a particularly good condition as it is. As well as an increase in the number of potholes with which road users and pedestrians have to contend, cold and damp conditions can also wreak havoc on manhole covers and drains.

    If you’re injured as a result of coming off worse with a road or pavement imperfection that should have been repaired by your local authority after it appeared as a consequence of severe weather, then you might be able to seek personal injury compensation from your council with the aid of top 100% no win no fee solicitors in Hurn.

    When the concrete and tarmac around manhole covers and drains gets wet or cold, it expands and contracts. This can result in them sinking into the ground or rising up above it. It doesn’t take a road safety expert to predict what this could lead to.

    Although it’s not practical to expect local councils to put these things right as soon as they happen, you might be able to use solicitors in Hurn to seek compensation from your local authority if you get hurt by a weather-related road imperfection that’s been there for a while.

    Do it with the experts at Accident Advice Helpline

    Although you will have the option of seeking a personal injury compensation from your local authority yourself, you would be best advised to do so with top 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitors in Hurn at Accident Advice Helpline fighting your corner. If you are not familiar with the ins and outs of personal injury law, you could find that your local authority tries to get away with paying you as little as possible.
