Default Will the county pay for bent wheel from pot hole?????

We hit a pot hole on Dalisa Rd in Santa Rosa County on saturday night that bent the wheel and cut the tire. When we were changing the tire, a guy stopped by and said that his family member hit the same hole about an hour and a half before and it did the same thing to his car.

Does anyone know if the county will step up and pay for their negligence?

That would be a big NO, they will tell you they are not responsible, which i think is BS. but that is the way it is... :usaflag

My buddy ruined a tire due to a pot hole and the county did pay for it. He had to fill out a bunch of paper work though.

This just happened to me last week on Sorrento in the Perdido area. Hit a nasty pothole at 55mph and it ruined a good tire. Fortunately my rim is ok but I'm sure the wheel alignment is out now. I thought about pursueing it with the county but figured it would be more trouble than its worth for a tire. Escambia County or the State or whoever is responsible REALLY needs to do something about Sorrento Rd. out in that area!! I drive this stretch to work every day and it SUCKS. Every time it rains, there are fifty new potholes in various spots. This road is falling apart and I can't understand why they can't resurface it at least if they aren't gonna four lane. Traffic to the beach out there is on the rise, time to do something about the 'effin road!

BudYsr - I feel your pain man! I drive the same stretch, and hit them continuosly!

The county is too busy tearingup roads,including mine and revamping the ditches, causing me the worst flooding I've experienced in my 11 years of living there! Those cheap bastards ain't gonna pay for crap!! They expect us to pay for their screw-ups!:looser

I would say yes, depends how you present it. First you need to find the county negligent for not repairing in a reasonable amount of time. You will have to prove it was reported and not repaired, then taken to court. It should be barracaded imediatly after notifying the county of the hazard. If not you may have a case. Good luck just telling them what happened, but a few big words, and attorney may change their minds.
