Potholes & Road Construction

Of all the different types of collisions, this collision is the most time and place- sensitive. If the pothole or road hazard, including road construction, is the doing of the government or on government property, you have 6 months to file a claim. Furthermore, liability is dependent on the classification of where the accident happened. For example, if the area of the accident is considered a trail, liability is drastically reduced. These types of bike accidents turn on whether or not sufficient notice was given by the government. Documenting what was going on days leading up to the accident is extremely important. For this reason, you must move quickly.
