    Surrey accident claims


    Injuries from hitting a pothole while cycling can result in Surrey accident claims

    The area of Surrey is located in England and was the site of a compensation claim made by a group of cyclists agains the Kingston Council. The claim was made as a result of injuries that were sustained on roads that contained multiple potholes. As yet, only one of the claims has been successful and the compensation that was paid out amounted to 700 pounds. This claim involved a cyclist who was injured in an accident on October 4 2013 on Grafton Road in New Malden.

    The six other claims that were made between the years of 2012 and 2014 were not successful and these figures were revealed in a freedom of information request that was made by the news organisation, the Surrey Comet, after they made requests for compensation claims from cyclists against the local council.

    A representative of the Kingston Cycling, Jon Fray has said that the cyclists who are making compensation claims would prefer not to have to make them but are compelled to do so when these incidents happen. He also expressed surprise at the number of claims made considering the widespread prevalence of the potholes on the council’s roads.

    To illustrate this issue, a member of the Kingston Brag Residents’ Association has made a web site that is solely dedicated to showing images of all the dangerous potholes that are located in the north of Kingston. A member of the residents association has pointed out that the roads have potholes because the roads have not been resurfaced and that Richmond Park Road is a particularly bad road that has not been resurfaced in a substantial amount of time.

    Claims have also made for damage to the bikes of cyclists from being involved in pothole-related accidents. A successful claim was made in 2013 for bike damage in an accident on Moor Lane that amounted to 175 pounds.

    One of the cyclists who is waiting on a claim to be finalised has suggested that cyclists are being dissuaded from making a compensation claim by the council making it difficult to find the relevant administrative officers that deal with claims.
