Madison Pothole Attorneys
Much to the ire of motorists across the Wisconsin, many roadways are scarred with potholes. These road defects can damage wheels and tires as well as a vehicle’s suspension system. In some of the worst conditions, a pothole may be large enough to engulf the better part of a tire, proving catastrophic to a motorist’s safety. A substantial pothole might cause a motorist to lose control of his or her vehicle, especially if a tire bursts due to the force of a sudden drop.

Local and state governments are generally responsible for the maintenance of public roads. Failure to attend to the condition of a compromised road puts drivers and passengers in needless danger. Potholes tend to follow this course of development:
- Stress from passing traffic creates fissures in the road
- These cracks grow over time
- Ice and snow increase the size of these cracks
- Gaps appear in the road surface as fissures grow deeper
- Traffic carries away broken chunks of asphalt
- Process continues over time, increasing in size
Pothole-related accidents are difficult to prevent because a driver is unlikely to have enough time to avoid a pothole. But if the municipal agency or contractor responsible for monitoring and repairing the road upholds its responsibilities, then these dangers would not exist.
