Personal Injury After Encountering A Pothole
If you can prove the city had notice of the pothole, and they should have corrected the problem before your injury, you can sue the city for your injuries. There is no cap on damages since you are suing a governmental agency. Since you are suing a non-automotive defendant, the injured person does not need to prove that they suffered a serious impairment of a body function. Click here to see if you have a case.
