Hit A Massive Pothole? File A Claim With MDOT

DETROIT (WWJ) – MDOT is reminding drivers that they can file claims for potential reimbursement if their vehicles have been victimized by potholes.

The claim only applies to state trunklines — highways that have an “M,” “I,” or “US” prefix — such as M-10, I-75, or US-23.

To prove your case, you’ll have to show that MDOT failed to reasonably maintain the highway, and that they knew the problem existed for at least 30 days. .

Claims for less than $1,000 must be submitted to the MDOT regional office or transportation service center that covers the county where the incident occurred. If a claim is for $1,000 or more, it must be filed with the Michigan Court of Claims in Lansing.

A claim form and instructions are available online at www.michigan.gov/mdot.
