    Your local authority will typically have responsibility for the upkeep of the roads in your area, so if you’ve noticed that there are a lot of potholes about the place, as a council tax-payer you’ll have the right to feel more than a little peeved. On top of potentially causing damage to your vehicle, large potholes on the public highway could put you at risk of becoming involved in an accident that was not your fault, especially when driving at night or in poor weather conditions.

    Not to fear though, if you’re injured in an accident that came about as result of a pothole-related driving accident that was not your fault, there will be a chance that you may be able to use the services of a top-class no win no fee solicitor in Downham Market to sue the highways department of your local authority for compensation.

    Potholes and no win no fee solicitors in Downham Market

    If you are going to stand a good chance of winning personal injury compensation with the aid of a good no win no fee solicitor in Downham Market after being injured in a pothole-related accident that was not your fault, you’re going to need to make sure you have plenty of evidence to support your claim. Firstly, and most importantly, you’re going to need medical evidence that proves you suffered the injuries you claim to have. If you sought medical attention after being injured, this won’t be a problem.

    It will also be useful if you could take a photograph of the offending pothole. Along with this, it will be good if you can supply the date and time that the accident took place, where you were travelling, what the weather conditions were like, and the reason why you believe your local council was responsible for what happened to you. You will also need to provide proof that your vehicle was roadworthy and totally legal for any compensation claim to be successful.

    There will be a good chance that your local authority may try to settle with you before your case gets to court. This will save time and money on both sides, but before you consider any such offer, it will be important to speak with a top 100% no win no fee solicitor in Downham Market about whether the amount you’re being offered would match what you could get in court.
