No compensation yet for cement-sprayed drivers

A Bristol-based concrete firm is remaining quiet over whether scores of motorists will receive car accident compensation after their vehicles were spattered with concrete.

Concrete Repairs Limited (CRL), which was working as a subcontractor for Southampton City Council at the time, has refused to comment on whether drivers whose cars were sprayed with a concrete residue will be compensated, the Daily Echo reports.

Over 100 drivers reported that their vehicles were damaged as they drove over the Redbridge flyover in Southampton.

Paul Watters, head of roads policy at the AA, said motorists are too often the victims of circumstances beyond their control.

"However it’s a legal minefield trying to get legal recompense from those responsible," he told the paper.

Mr Watters added: "It is much better to be up front about it.

"It seems to be pretty clear-cut to me."

The case follows reports from the campaign group Potholes.co.uk that local authorities in the UK currently pay out more than £50 million per year settling car accident compensation claims caused by poorly-maintained roads.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19208426-ADNFCR
