Pot Hole Accident FAQ | Pothole and Defective Roadway Lawyers


What are pot-holes?

Potholes are known as small to large displacements in the gravel on highways, sidewalks or other manufactured land. Generally, potholes develop as a result of long term exposure to rain, traffic and other wear and tear. When a pothole develops it is often difficult to maneuver or know of its existence. When a vehicle fails to notice serious damage to a car because of potholes . Potholes are numerous in Los Angeles and California and can cause extensive damage. Potholes are also known as kettles, chuckholes or sinkholes and cause disruption to the surface to the road ways, they occur when there is a buildup of water or debris that causes the pavement to break. Once this happens the pot hole can grow in both size and depth and without proper care it can cause damage to the vehicle.

Who is responsible to pay for damages in a Pothole Accident

Liability for pothole accident can be difficult to ascertain, this question is often the most difficult to answer and depends on a number of factors. City and municipalities are generally required by law to fix and maintain proper roads and highways, free of defects or damages. However, liability will result when the city, municipality or entity had knowledge of the defect or should have had knowledge, but failed to act so as to remedy the problem. The challenging part is to show that there was “knowledge” or that the city should have had knowledge of the incident.

Recovery is dependent on a number of factors, including the pre-existing damage if any and the cause of the damage. If for instance the cause was due to a pre-existing issue with the vehicle i.e. a low tread tire, then it is likely that recovery would be limited. Another example would be if the car sustains tire damage and had prior alignment issues, the recovery would be limited to the tire damage only and not pre-existing issues.
