Wisconsin Potholes Attorneys
Though potholes are often regarded as nothing more than a nuisance, the reality is that they have the potential to pose a significant threat to motorists and their vehicles. Municipal authorities or their authorized agents have a responsibility to ensure that the roads in their jurisdiction are timely and properly maintained so that they do not create needless dangers on the roadway. When they fail to do so, they may bear legal liability for accidents that occur.

Consequences of Potholes

- Collisions when a driver must swerve to avoid a pothole
- Collisions when a driver is distracted by the sudden impact of a pothole
- Injuries and vehicle damage caused by the jarring of a pothole impact
- Collisions when a driver loses control of the vehicle due to a pothole
- Hydroplaning due to water in larger potholes
