  • Attached are images highlighting the damage caused to our vehicle upon driving over this pothole on the evening of 12th Nov 2019. A new tyre and full wheel replacement was needed and I would like to know how to make a claim for the damages incurred. I have additional photos and evidence from both the RAC and the local garage who repaired the vehicle. How do I proceed with a compensation claim?
