Damage from Potholes
Potholes are an unfortunately frequent occurrence on roadways and can develop because of extreme weather patterns or wear and tear. There are some that may be minor enough to simply serve as a disturbance when driving, but others can lead to vehicle damage such as:
- Suspension irregularities
- Unaligned tires
- Wearing out of shock absorbers
- Aesthetic damage to panels and bumpers
- Weakening of tires
- Dents, scratches, or other types of damage to the undercarriage
In an effort to regain control of a vehicle after driving over a pothole, a driver may act erratically and cause a serious accident.
