I stand to be corrected here but I think If the pothole is unmarked you wont have any luck claiming against the council..

"They do have a statutory defence as they cannot be held liable for a
defect they do not know about, because it has not been reported
to them."

Mordey is right, unless they know about and haven't yet tried to fix it you'll not have much luck,

You never know, it could've been reported and marked up by now ;)

I successfully claimed against an unmarked one couple of years ago. I would have thought it was their duty to keep the roads in a fit state. They could argue a marked one is easier to spot and avoid

Same happened to my dads mg went over a pot hole which couldnt be seen in any light or angle of driving until you where in it, i rang the council to report it then a couple of hours later my dad rang up to get a claim in, and they paid for a new wheel new tyre new spring and repairs to the under side of the car as his mg is only a couple of inches above the ground, morally not right but still pay road tax for a reason

Thanks Guys for all your help, the pot hole was reported the day before but still no one had repaired or at least done a temporary repair on it.

this happened on Saturday and as of last night it has still not been repaired!!

i can only try to claim, we will see what happens and i will let you know.
