Waukesha Pothole Accident Attorneys
Potholes are notorious in areas where road maintenance has clearly failed local motorists. These defects can seriously damage systems tied to a driver’s ability to control the direction of a vehicle, posing a distinct threat to everyone else on the road. In addition, drivers may brake or swerve to get out of the way of potholes, causing damage to unsuspecting motorists who cannot react in time.

Potholes develop for a number of reasons. In particular, these road defects appear in cold weather, high-volume highways more often than other roads. As traffic wears down the integrity of a road, cold weather and precipitation can cause cracks to develop in the road surface. As these cracks worsen, traffic volume can persistently move away chunks of the road, leaving a gaping hole behind. From this point, a pothole can cause the following issues:
- Wheel damage
- Suspension damage
- Tire blow-out
- Loss of control
- Collisions with other motorists
- Bodily harm
These damages are avoidable if a pothole is fixed promptly by local roadway maintenance crews. Unfortunately, some municipalities fail to live up to their responsibility to motorists.
If you have been injured because of the damages caused by a pothole, you may be entitled to pursue legal action. For more information regarding your legal rights as an accident victim, contact the Waukesha pothole lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today by calling 800-242-2874.
