I was going around a corner some road works, 15/20 ish mph there was loose gravel on the road and caused me to crash. I sent a claim to the council, they said it was due to the contractors who were doing the roadworks and that they would pass my complaint on.
I received a letter this morning from the contractor saying that their local area manager said there was gravel there before hand so the responsibility lies with the council. I have a witness who lives in the area who said that the gravel has only been there since the roadworks. I have plenty of photos and a sample of the gravel.
Do you think I should pursue it through the small claims court against the contractor?
Ill try and get a couple of the photos up when I can find them!
