What compensation you can receive

BACK to 'Step-by-step guide'

Obtain a full break down of costs for all damage caused by the pothole. If you incur additional costs, keep a break down of these but remember that you might not get any or all of your expenditure back and that any unrealistic or extravagant claims are likely to promote a negative response.

Remember that your compensation claim will take a while to be processed, and that you might not be able to claim for all the costs you incur. For example, if you hit a pothole and damage an alloy wheel you may be able to claim for the cost of the replacement wheel and tyre, but only for the one wheel – not four matching ones.
