- If injured ensure that you seek medical advice from a hospital or your GP
- Photograph the incident scene including the pothole and any personal injuries
- Do not inform the local authorities until photographic evidence has been collected of the scene and, if the incident is serious, the cause of the accident has been witnessed by police and/or your solicitor.
