(PRWEB UK) 8 July 2013
According to Which? magazine, in 2012 local authorities in the UK paid out compensation ranging from £100,000 in the East Midlands to £8 million in north-west England on vehicle damage due to potholes in the road. Road users can make a claim to their local council or highway agency to cover the cost of repairs caused by potholes and car insurance comparison website Tiger.co.uk has published a guide offering advice as to how to make a claim. The guide contains information on the type of damage that can be caused by hitting a pothole and step-by-step instructions on how to make a claim. Tiger.co.uk is committed to providing their users with useful motoring related advice to complement their insurance comparison service.
Andrew Goulborn, Commercial Director of Suffolk based Tiger.co.uk, commented:
“Following a particularly cold winter, there was a lot of media coverage regarding potholes and pothole damage. We thought it would be useful for motorists to know a bit more about the issue and to understand how to make a claim. We also wanted to get more motorists to inform their local councils about any pothole damage they find so that remedial action can be taken, making our roads safer for all users.”
The pothole claim guide can be found in the “Help and Info” area of the Tiger.co.uk site, which can be located in the drop down menu at the top right of the home page. Tiger.co.uk has been developing informative content for some time to offer support to visitors using the site to research and purchase motor insurance as well as to help with other motoring matters .
