Dangers Caused by Potholes

Potholes are a common form of roadway damage in the Milwaukee area. Many drivers and their passengers suffer injuries and expenses from car accidents due to a sudden encounter with a pothole. Many of these drivers also didn’t know that they could be compensated for their suffering since roadway repairs are the responsibility of local municipal entities. The attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® are dedicated to helping drivers understand and explore their legal options if they are hurt by municipal negligence.

Common Dangers

We are used to seeing potholes and rarely give them a second thought. Though potholes may initially seem innocuous, they can be extremely dangerous because of effects like:

  • Sudden swerving / overcorrection
  • Increased chance of tire blow out
  • Increased chance of vehicular control loss
  • Catalyst for rollover accidents

These situations can be unsafe for any driver on the road and the passengers they carry. Many drivers have found themselves victims of the situations listed above, sometimes to the detriment of their health or finances.
