Cumbria County Council

by REwood

24 Nov 2011

To cut a very long story short, I hit a really bad pothole in January this year that damaged two alloys and tyres on my two year old x-type. I had just bought the car and was gutted. I had to replace both wheels and tyres at a cost of £550.
I initially claimed via my insurers, LVE Frizzell, who simply took the Cumbria County Council's insurer's, Zurich, word that despite it being a category 1 , 1 day repair pothole, that I hit over 24 hours of the them becoming aware of it, that the Council was not liable. They blamed the severe weather for the delays to the repairs of the pothole. The Council also said the road had been ok at a routine inspection on 8 December
I sought details of all potholes that had been reported between 8 December until mid January and details of all repair to them. These document simply showed that the Council had been aware of problems on the road long before they stated and had actually been repairing potholes on and around the relevant road the very day I hit the pothole. Their story was simply not true. I cited this to Zurich and they have today accepted liability and asked for details of my claim.
Despite my success, I am so annoyed at this whole process, not only at the Council, but also at both sets of insurers. I intend to claim full damages and repay my insurers the £250 it paid out for my claim (I lost out on £300 excess) and ask them to recalculate my last insurance policy which suffered due to the claim.
I took heart from some of the stories on this website and did everything myself, it wasn’t that challenging. The moral, as is so often quoted on this site, don’t give up.

Last Call Sale is almost over at cheap replica handbags Neiman Marcus! So get some gorgeous bags while they'e still in stock. Here are a couple of my favorite Celine bags marked down.This Celine Dorine is only left in ivory calfskin! This bag also came in a gorgeous dark brown, but sadly Neiman Marcus sold out of replica handbags that color. The long shape of this bag is a little different from any of replica handbags sale the bags that I have – measurements of this bag are 8″ height x 16 1/2″ width x 7″ depth. I like it.This Celine Dorine is only left in ivory calfskin! This bag also came in a gorgeous dark brown, but sadly Neiman Marcus sold out of that color. The long shape of mulberry replica this bag is a little different from any of the bags that I have – measurements of this bag are 8″ height x 16 1/2″ width x 7″ depth. I like it.This is my number one pick of replica handbags uk the week. I love it, just look at it, the dark chocolate brown deerskin leather satchel adorned with an eye-catching dragon detailed buckle closure and luggage Prada tag with the same serpent detailing and topped off with a dangling side gold chain. Oh I adore this bag!This lovely new addition retails for an extravagant $2,250. Can I just not pay condo rent for this month and get this lovely bag? If only life was that simple. Due to high demand for this fab bag, customer may not order more than three units of this item every thirty days. Expected shipment date for this new Prada Cervo Animalier Satchel will be no later than October 23rd.I like Versace, really I do, but this bag just doesn't do it for me. IMO the designers at Versace need to snap out of it, tone it down a degree or two. There is way too much going on for me to fall head over heels for this Versace Quilted Snap Out of It bag. This Versace logo quilted leather fabric bag with its metallic gold leather braided arm straps and signature Versace-engraved gold metal studs and chain links and to top that all off this bag is ornamented with gold mirror plaque engraved with "Gianni Versace Couture", and dangling to the side a removable strap attached to tiny keys that open the gold metal signature Versace-engraved locks. That sounds like a lot just writing it out, but see for yourself in the picture above. One characteristic I do like about this bag is the shape, mostly because it sort of reminds me of the Louis Vuitton Speedy. Just the shape though, nothing else about this bag looks anything like what you would see on a Louis Vuitton purse.

While a Hublot replica may be accepted and gives you the http://www.makingartwork.co.uk aforementioned agreement of superior and durability, it is appropriate that you attending out for affected timepieces if aggravating to buy replica Swiss watches. Several affected wristwatches abound in food and on the Internet. While counterfeiting acclimated to be a cottage industry, it is now a abomination syndicate with adult tools. Anniversary day, it is acceptable harder and harder for consumers to differentiate amid a replica and a fake. So what would the approved Joe or Jane do in this situation? The analytic acknowledgment would be to attending for replica watches. For your accord of rolex replica mind, replicas are not necessarily the getting that involves actionable trade. The replicas are rather acknowledged and they are produced as a accolade to the aboriginal timepiece. Bigger yet, replicas do not amount as abundant as the aboriginal one. This is because you alone pay for the absolute assembly amount as the amount of analysis and development has already been covered in the http://www.replicaonlines.uk.com antecedent sales of the accurate models. That is why replicas would appear way afterwards afterwards the aboriginal architecture has been launched. If you wish to be contemporary and get the latest timepieces advised by Rolex, for example, the replica Rolex will not be for you. You can accept it by the time your affluent accompany accept gotten apathetic with theirs. Nevertheless, the replicas are the next best affair to the original. So why should one complain? Another acumen replicas such as the replica Breitling do not amount as abundant the aboriginal is that manufacturers accept whittled down some abstracts to be able to aftermath at a lower cost. If, for example, the originals accept design stones anchored on the face of the watch, these are replaced with added gems of bottom amount in the replicas. You charge not anguish because even if the abstracts are not like those of the replica watches original, you get the aforementioned absorption and backbone that is accepted a part of Swiss watches. The bracelets and the face of the watch are appealing abundant the aforementioned as the original. You can aswell bet that the apparatus central the watch, which makes the easily flow, are appealing abundant agnate to the aboriginal Swiss watch. As a guide, actuality are some things you charge to pay absorption to if arcade for replica Swiss watches. The watch companies act apart to replica watches uk assure their trademarks and branded products. Some of them absorb fortunes annually in a multi-front battle, alive with U.S. Community and federal, state, and bounded law-enforcement agencies, and even their own clandestine investigators, to action abyss who abduct their bookish acreage .

Got cheques from Council’s insurers for full amount of £548 today. Had a good pop ay my insurers for their shoddy/non-existent work in this matter and, after threatening to take them to the Financial Ombudsman, I managed to get a compensation payment of £125 pounds out of them. That is also without prejudice to any recalculation to my last car insurance policy which was affected by this now no fault claim. Happy days!
