Is the city liable for accidents caused by potholes?

Posted under Uncategorized

Old roads that have not been repaired recently are often full of potholes. These potholes can cause cars to lost control and swerve off the road.

When car accidentls are caused by these potholes, drivers are often unsure who is liable for the damages. The liability is often determined by the facts and circumstances of the case. 

If the driver can show that the pothole led directly to the accident, then the driver may be able to sue the party or jurisdiction that is in charge of maintaining the safety of that road.
