Pothole Accidents

Most drivers see potholes on the road every day, and while these road defects may appear small and incapable of causing serious harm, they can be a major threat to a driver’s vehicle and safety. Fundamentally, potholes are openings in the top layer of the road, or the asphalt, because of continual wear and tear over the years. These openings usually start small but can grow to several feet wide if they aren’t taken care of, and can cause significant damage to a car – potentially causing impact similar to that of a 35 mph car accident.

Even small potholes have the potential to cause damage, and you may be able to hold a municipality responsible if you or a loved one has suffered from a pothole-related accident. Contact Your Iowa car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 and let us help you seek the financial compensation you deserve.

Pothole Damages

Potholes can come in all shapes and sizes and can also be deceptively deep if they fill up with rainwater. These defects can occur virtually anywhere and you should be aware of them while on the road. If your car absorbs significant or repeated shock from a pothole, it may be damaged in one or more of the following ways:

  • Wearing of suspension
  • Unaligned tires
  • Wear and tear of tires
  • Damage to shock absorbers
  • Damaged steering components

In some cases, potholes may even lead to vehicle collisions. The majority of pothole accidents could be avoided if the municipalities responsible for road maintenance take proper action.
