How to file a claim with Michigan if your car is damaged by potholes #MotownMom
DETROIT (WJBK) – If you’ve got damage and think you can prove that the state, county, or city was negligent in fixing it within 30 days, you may be able to recoup your cash. Maybe.
There’s potholes and then there’s Michigan roads. You know, the ones with massive sections missing that people crawl over to hopefully avoid losing one or even all four tires. If one of those missing sections of pavement damages your car, you can get reimbursed.
It’s tricky, but you can file a claim with the state of Michigan or with the city where your car was eaten by a pothole and, yes, you MAY get reimbursed. We say ‘may’ because it’s not easy and you have to prove the government in charge knew about the problem.
