There are a variety of roadway defects that can cause serious damage to vehicles and devastating injuries to motorists. One such roadway defect is potholes. Potholes are openings in the top layer of the road caused by the effects of weather and repeated wear and tear. Although potholes may appear harmless, they can cause severe car accidents. In fact, potholes can grow to be several feet wide and can cause significant damage to your vehicle.
If you have been injured in a car accident because of a pothole, you may be able to hold the municipality responsible for that roadway liable for damages including medical bills, repair bills, and pain and suffering.

While five of the top seven worst areas for potholes in the United States are in California, potholes can arise anywhere and you should be aware of the serious dangers they create for motorists. When cars roll over potholes, the vehicles experience a great deal of shock which can affect a car in the following ways:
- Wearing of suspension
- Misaligned tires
- Wear and tear on the tires
- Damage to shock absorbers
- Damaged steering components
Whenever any of these problems occur, a driver’s ability to maintain control over his or her vehicle may be compromised, resulting in a serious accident.
If you have suffered from municipal negligence in the form of a pothole accident, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact the Milwaukee pothole accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today to schedule a free consultation.
