Claiming for an Accident on Untreated Roads

Claiming for an accident on untreated roads

If you have suffered personal injury because of an accident on an untreated road, then you might be wondering who is to blame. Many accidents resulted from the dangerous conditions all road users faced recently, the coldest December since records began 100 years ago. However it is not another person that is to blame for your personal injury, but the untreated road surface itself. Manners Pimblett may be able to help you with your personal injury claim resulting from this particular type of accident.
