    Agree with above. If it had been reported before you would have a very good case. Might be worth a FOI request to see if that pothole or similar ones had been reported.

    Obviously sorry you're in a bad way, but hopefully the insurance will cover the bike, your employer are understanding about your lack of mobility and it's not disrupting your income. If I was in your position I think I'd leave it or limit the the request to ensuring the road is repaired.

    Taking a council to court is very hard. I had the council cut down all the trees in our lovely road for line of sight for CCTV. The tree's had 'Tree Protection Orders' on them which is a £10,000 fine and a month in Jail for each tree. I had my MP's backing and the head of the council helping me/residents to fight the council and still nothing was done. It's up to you. I personally would go the the "where there's blame, there's a claim" solicitors. They do all the work but take 25-35% + vat of the final settlement which could be big with your arm.

    Personally, I never ride without legal insurance then it's all covered and you get the full settlement. I was hit whilst stationary at the back of a queue of cars at a junction in a single lane, one way street. She was texting at 40mph and didn't see the stationary traffic. Weeks in hospital and 5 years later I got the payout which was worth the aggro. The best bit was she initially said to the police I reversed into her on my motorbike. LOL
