Road Defects

Accidents caused by road defects could lead to serious personal injury. Whether your slip, trip or fall was on foot or on a bicycle, you could suffer everything from sprains to deep lacerations, broken bones, concussions or worse.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a road defect, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. This is where Watermans Accident Claims and Care can help. With over a decade of experience, Watermans is one of the the leading personal injury firms in Scotland, taking on cases on a no win, no fee basis.

In order to make a successful road defect claim, first find out who owns the part of the land where the accident occured. If the area belongs to the council, you should write a letter of complaint and send it to them as soon as possible. This will alert them of the defect and can be used as part of the documentation for your claim.

Make sure to take photographs of the accident area, and use a ruler or tape measure to show how big the road defect is. If there were any witnesses, make sure to get a statement and their contact details.
