Default IDOT Pays For Pothole Damage

I just received a check today for my wheel and tire damage to my MOMO wheel from this past March. I called once every two months to check the status of my claim. It was a hard long process. You have to get a police report, pictures, find a hidden link on the web-site for a phone number, then contact the respective field office (in my case Schaumburg) and request a claim form. I did receive a letter last month stating it was not their fault and I said "F" that and called back and they re-opened my claim and subsequently sent a form for me to fill out releasing them from further liability. Persistence pays off. I hope this thread finds those who have made a claim well. Keep up on it and it will prevail. Needless to say, after my incident, a month later, Archer was all repaved on the whole stretch that was pothole alley.

It was Archer in unincorporated Lemont between Rt 83 (Kingery Highway) and Bell Rd. It was completely repaved right after my incident. I am now "Gun-shy" of potholes and bad roads.

Illinois has the worst roads in the country and we all can thank Springfield and the politics for this. No offense to any members who are employed by K5 or other state run road crews, but they design the roads to last only a year or so and constantly need repair, thus, constant road jobs and contracts going to nepotism.

I received the full amount of the wheel and told IDOT that lucky for them, my brand new tire was covered under warranty.

That pothole I hit was a little smaller than the Jeeps demise one. It had the same magnitude though.
