Potholes are a leading cause of motorcycle accidents and are becoming increasingly common. Unfortunately potholes are generally more common in the winter months when the moisture between cracks in the road freezes and expands, exposing imperfections and weakening the asphalt.
According to new data, potholes are not only increasing in numbers, but they are getting deeper and larger with councils taking longer to fix them.
A lot of people don’t realise that you can claim compensation if you have come off your bike because of a pothole, even by swerving to avoid one. Councils pay out thousands of pounds per year to people who have suffered as a result of the council’s negligence, so you could be entitled to make a claim too.
We hope you do not need to make a claim with us, but if you do, we have had plenty of experience in pothole claims so are confident in our ability to get you the money you deserve.
