Is Pothole Damage Covered by State, Town, or Insurance?

AAA reports that pothole damage accounts for around $3 billion a year in damages, accounting around 500,000 insurance claims per year,

Potholes happen mostly during the freeze/thaw winter months as water seeps into small cracks in the road and freezes. The cracks expand and contract, combined with heavy traffic, pavement age, vehicle weights, and snow plows, cracks become potholes.

Who’s Responsible for Pothole Damage?

Unfortunately, the responsibility for avoiding a pothole usually falls on the driver and in Massachusetts, it’s almost impossible to get the state or town to pay up for your pothole damage.

That’s because according to Massachusetts law MGL c.81, s.18 – Defects in Highway, Liability (State Roads) and MGL c.84, s.15 – Personal injuries or property damage from defective ways (City or Town Roads), you’ll need to prove that the state and/or town was negligent in repairing and maintaining road conditions.

But it’s going to be nearly impossible to prove that anyone knew about a pothole and failed to do anything about it.

While pothole damage claims to the state are usually denied, some towns and cities will reimburse.

If you have a pothole “encounter”, make sure you take a picture of the pothole and damage to your vehicle, then determine who is responsible for the road (town/city/state). Go online and find the procedures to file a claim. Remember to get estimates from local auto repair shops before submitting your claim for approval.

Invest some time and you could get reimbursed without paying an insurance deductible.

Check out the City of Boston’s pothole claim procedure.

Is Pothole Damage Covered by Insurance?

If you bought a road-hazard protection plan on your tires and/or wheels that’s great! Hop, skip, and jump back to where you bought it!

If not, your car insurance will usually recognize an immediate damage claim, but you’ll probably pay a deductible and watch your renewal increase.

Most pothole damage is wear and tear, with no specific incident to blame. So if your car doesn’t feel right, let’s check it out, we’re experts in smooth riding vehicles and have your best interests in mind.

Shopping for Tires? What’s Included?

Buying tires is confusing. So many choices and it’s hard to figure out exactly what’s included in the price.

Online tire prices are cheap, but it’s for the tire only;  you’ll still need to find and pay someone to install your tires.

Chain stores bait and switch with free services like “front-end alignments” that don’t exist, or  “free snow tire changeovers”.  Others offer famous “Buy 3, get 1 tire free” deals to confuse you even more.

There’s nothing free in tires – You get what you pay for. We believe in being honest and upfront with you, with no surprises or hidden add-ons.

Shopping for tires at a sleazy tire shop

Here’s what’s included in our tire price:

The basics:

  1. Tire mounting – We take the old tire off and install a new one without damaging your wheels or car.
  2. High-speed balancing – We go a step further and use road-force optimization to give you the smoothest ride possible.
  3. Standard rubber valve stem – If needed.
  4. Scrap tire recycling – We will dispose of your old tires in an environmentally responsible way.

The included extras:

  1. Free Nitrogen Tire Inflation – Nitrogen helps your tires maintain proper tire pressure longer. Properly inflated tires wear longer, are more fuel efficient, and have increased tread life.
  2. Free TPMS Reset – When the tire warning symbol (an exclamation point inside a tire) lights up on your dashboard, it’s the TPMS sensor that triggered it. It means tire pressure is too low or too high. Whenever you buy tires this unit needs to be reset. Some tire dealers charge $20-$30 extra to reset this – We do it free.
  3. Free Tire Protection Plan – Just about every tire we sell is covered by road hazard protection – That means we’ll repair or replace your tires free for 12 months or 12,000 miles.
  4. Free Lifetime Rotations – Regular rotations every 5,000 miles extend tire life and should be part of your regular vehicle maintenance.

Shopping for tires shouldn’t be a mystery.

So forget the chain stores! At Kenwood Tire & Auto Service you’ll find honest advice, good tires, quality service, and the support you need to make your new tires a good investment.

Call (508) 583-5031 for a quote or shop us online – We’ll include everything we need to do the job right the first time.

 

Hunter TCX57 – There’s a New Tire Machine in the Shop!

There’s a new tire machine in the shop! Weighing in at over 1000lbs the Hunter TCX57 is a beast!

Although once you get to know beast it’s more like the Gentle Giant.

“Big, muscular and angry looking. He might even be an actual monster. People are often fearful of him. But he’s got a heart of gold. He loves children and puppies and frequently abhors unnecessary violence. He is often rather intelligent, level-headed and analytical, a voice of reason in the group. He probably has a few unexpected hobbies. He’s the Gentle Giant”TV Tropes

Just like the Gentle Giant, this Hunter TCX57 tore machine is a tender beast who’s hopefully got a heart of gold and our backs too 🙂
