Cincinnati Pothole Attorneys

Despite a driver’s best efforts to operate a vehicle safely, road defects can lead to dangerous accidents. Potholes, for example, may be difficult to see and could cause a motorist to lose control of his or her automobile. Potholes are holes in the road surface that result from a variety of different factors and which can cause serious damage to your vehicle. City, state, or federal agencies are responsible for maintaining streets and highways. When they fail to repair roads damaged by potholes, motorists are endangered needlessly.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident that was caused by a pothole, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact the experienced Cincinnati accident attorneys of Stepleton & Dugan, LLC, at 513-321-7733 to discuss your legal options.

Causes of Potholes

There is nothing that can be done to prevent potholes from appearing. However, it is important that the parties responsible for road maintenance promptly and properly repair them when they appear. The following are some of the factors that can lead to the development of potholes:

  • Normal wear and tear
  • Expansion of ice under pavement
  • Heat, causing brittle pavement
  • Ignored cracks in the road, allowed to expand
  • Defects in road-building

Potholes are generally easy and inexpensive to fix, but if left unrepaired, they can cause significant damage to vehicles, especially if they are unseen by drivers, particularly at night.
