Roadway defects are a major cause of traffic accidents every year across the United States. Potholes are some of the most common types of roadway defects and can cause significant damage to your vehicle. When potholes are not timely and properly repaired by the responsible authority, they can grow larger and pose an even more serious risk to the safety of motorists. Those who are injured in related accidents or whose vehicles are damaged by potholes may be able to seek financial compensation by pursuing legal action against the appropriate party.
