What if I crash because of some defect (pothole) in the road?Posted on September 9, 2015
Generally, you cannot recover because of a defective condition on a roadway or on a bike path. Roads and bike paths are built and maintained by government entities. In general, a claimant cannot sue the government unless the government gives permission to do so. That permission is given in the Texas Tort Claims act, and that permission is very, very limited.
