I bent a rim on Friday. So ya, this sucks... I am aware some of you guys on maX have gone after the citys and whatnot sending in claims and stuff to get them to pay for it since they dont take care of their roads. How does this work?? Do I send them a letter saying what happened and demanding money? or ...?? What do I need to do? take pics of the bump and/or rim? any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

i got money from them, i waited almost a year, and after they kept saying, next month, next month, they gave me an offer of half the requested amount, i got a 300$ cheque.

i dont remember what the address i sent it to was. sorry couldn't help you there.

Take pics of anything you can. The more you have the stronger your claim looks. Just go to your local city hall and ask there or the website.

The reason they pay out is cos they know they are at fault but want to avoid going to trial. More evidence you have the better.
