With the recent cuts in government funding, streets and roads are becoming shabbier. There is less money to repair things like potholes or broken pavements. If you have been victim to a punctured car tyre as a result of potholes you will know that they are a nuisance. Broken pavements are even worse. Senior citizens may be injured seriously from falls. You can make a stand against this with a good accident solicitor on your side. They will help you claim for injury, loss of earnings, cost of care and many other costs that are involved in the rehabilitation process.
If you are victim to a broken pavement, making a claim is probably the last thing on your mind. You are much more likely to want to speak with a doctor or trained medical staff. One thing that you should try and remember about making a claim is that it can help to cover the costs of medical bills or travel expenses to and from surgery, for example. We recommend that you take photographic evidence of any broken pavements or other problems that may have caused the accident and record the events by writing them down. This will really help with your claim later on.
