    car + corner + bus + pot hole = Problem

    Early this morning (5.30ish) i come to a tight corner in the village i live in and met a bus which can not come around the corner with out coming on my side of the road and to start with the bus stopped so i took it as he was letting me come around the corner but i either got it wrong or he is just a c*ck as i was half way around the corner he decided he would also come around. so it was either i hit the bus or tried to turn the corner a bit tighter and hope for the best, which i went for but by doing that the n/s/r wheel dropped in a pot hole and scraped about 8" of my alloy which i have just had refurbed 2 months ago and now it looks like a mountain range on it as it is rough as *****.

    Now it will be about Ł50 to put right though no fault of my own.

    Sorry about the ramblin but i am just so furious about it and there aint anything i can do about it.

    its not so much the money that is a problem at the mo as Ł50 to sort it aint too bad its the the hassel of having to get the wheel done as i work 6 days a week and the place that will repaire it is only open 5 days, so it just is a mess about. The worst thing is that it has just pissed me off so much as i was thinking of what i could do to my car for pickering show to make it that bit better looking but now this has to come first inline for jobs

    eeerrrrrrrr its just so annoying

    Phone your solicitor.

    The law states for personal injury, the council has 6 months to rectify a problem ie pothole from the date it appeared otherwise they are liable. The "we get 2 weeks after this" is bollocks for personal injury, so maybe its the same for damage to a vehicle.
