Cedar Rapids Pothole Accident Attorneys
When highways and roads are marred by defects like potholes, automotive travel can swiftly change from an everyday experience to a frightening ordeal. Potholes develop when large chunks of the roadway become separated from the surrounding surface and eventually are removed through wear. The result is a hole that can inflict serious damage upon your car and body.
Depending upon the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to file a legal action against the negligent municipal agency responsible for the maintaining the roadway. If successful, you could gain financial compensation for automobile repair costs, medical bills, and other damages. Contact the Cedar Rapids pothole accident attorneys of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 to discuss your case.

- Body Damage
- Blown Tires
- Broken Suspension
- Broken Struts
- Spinal Compression Injuries
- Dental Injuries
