As a consequence of the squeeze on local authority spending in the years since the recession of the late 2000s, many councils have even less money than they used to have to spend on improving the quality of the roads they are charged with looking after. When you consider the fact that this area of council spending was woefully underfunded pre-recession, you’ll probably easily be able to work out that this is not good news for road uses.
The same is true of pedestrian walkways and paths. These also are not given the attention they need. The upshot of this is that road users and pedestrians alike are at a greater risk of being injured in an accident that was not their fault while getting about.
Although it might not entirely make up for suffering a nasty injury as a result of an accident that was not your fault that came about as a result of a poorly-maintained road surface, you might be interested to know that if you were to suffer such a fate, there will be a chance that you might be able to seek a Test Valley accident at work compensation pay-out from your local authority.
