Green Bay Potholes Attorney

Potholes are often characterized simply as eyesores on otherwise pristine roads. However, the reality of the situation is that potholes present a danger for motorists who are reliant on roadways to be safe and free of defects. A pothole is usually the result of natural forces, particularly rain, snow and hail, impacting road materials in such a way that a crack or hole forms. With further weather fluctuations, that crack or hole can become exaggerated and present even greater hazards. Potholes can cause car accidents in a number of ways. It is important that potholes are fixed as soon as a municipal authority can arrange for this to be done.

If you or your loved one has been hurt in a car accident resulting from a city’s failure to repair a pothole in a timely manner, it may be possible to obtain financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact the Green Bay pothole accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to learn more about your legal rights and actions in this situation.

Effects of Potholes

Potholes represent a serious impediment to a vehicle’s ability to operate safely. While deeper potholes tend to cause more serious accidents, even small ones can impair the ability of a driver to control their vehicle or keep it free from damage.  Potholes can cause:

  • Axle damage
  • Chassis damage
  • Tire blowout
  • Hydroplaning

More gravely, driving over a pothole can lead to a crash that would otherwise not have occurred. The victims of these crashes should not be left to cope with the related financial burdens alone, and with a successful civil lawsuit, they may not have to do so.
