Claims for injuries caused by potholes on private roads

Potholes can be very dangerous because if you trip and fall you could be left with serious injuries that may require you to spend an extended period of time in hospital, meaning that you may be forced to miss work and lose your source of income. This problem can be even more detrimental if you are self-employed, so making a claim to recoup any of your losses could be in your best interests. It is the responsibility of the road owner to ensure that they meet health and safety regulations and if you believe that this isn’t the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence.

If you have been injured as a result of a pothole on a private road it can be a very painful situation which may require you to miss work and stay in hospital. A successful claim could help you through the recovery process as you could also recuperate any losses that you have incurred such as hospital fees or loss of earnings.
