Damage Caused by Potholes
Every time a motorist gets behind the wheel of a car or a passenger takes his or her seat, there is an implicit acceptance of the risk of a motor vehicle accident, though it may only be considered a distant possibility. The situation on the roadway is already somewhat delicate, as it relies upon the cooperation of each and every driver and a willingness to share the road as required by law and etiquette. When this already dangerous circumstance is complicated by the presence of roadway defects such as potholes, there is a distinct possibility that needless injuries may be sustained.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by a pothole or other highway defect then it may be in your interest to file a civil lawsuit against the negligent municipal agency that was responsible for road maintenance.

Dangerous Pothole Accidents
Potholes develop in the road surface where the stresses of traffic and climate pressures combine to displace a sometimes sizeable chunk of the road. The resulting void can interfere with the rotation of a vehicle’s wheels, compromise their traction, or cause a sudden and jarring drop. Even a skilled driver may have difficulty retaining control of a vehicle in these circumstances, particularly if a tire is ruptured by the impact. The resulting collision may cause significant injuries and vehicle damage, both of which may be compensable by a civil lawsuit.
Let us help you to secure the financial compensation that you are due if you have been hurt in an accident caused by a pothole. Contact the Waukesha car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 for more information.
