Racine Pothole Attorneys
Potholes are one of the most frequently encountered roadway defects that one might expect to find on a street or highway that has not been properly maintained. The size and depth of a pothole depends on the circumstances of the area and how long a municipal agency has allowed the problem to persist. But potholes of any size can create hazardous conditions for motorists.

A pothole is formed due to a combination of weather and road conditions. Potholes are most likely to occur and to deepen quickly in areas that receive heavy snow and ice in the winter and which regularly experience heavy traffic volume. As wear on a road combines with the expansion and contraction of hot and cold weather patterns, the integrity of the highway is compromised, breaking apart small chunks. Eventually, this can become a sizable hole in the road. The following are some possible effects of a pothole:
- Tire blowout
- Wheel damage
- Suspension damage
- Damage to the undercarriage of a vehicle
- Loss of steering control
