The danger potholes represent for motorists is often underestimated, as potholes are mistakenly characterized as relatively harmless blemishes on roadways. Potholes are, however, a common cause of accidents for motorists across Wisconsin. While potholes are produced by features of the climate and normal wear, municipal agencies have a responsibility to ensure that they are promptly filled when they appear. When they fail to fulfill this obligation, they may be found legally liable for accidents that result from their negligence.
If you have been hurt in a car accident that was caused by a poorly maintained roadway, it may be possible to recover financial compensation for vehicle repairs and other damages.

Potholes can also cause collisions with other cars, as a driver may swerve in reaction to the sudden shock of the pothole. The failure of a municipal agency to repair a pothole before it causes an accident represents intolerable negligence.
