Pothole liability law leaves no reprieve for man who loses eye

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Just two weeks before 51-year-old Kevin Droz was injured, Wisconsin’s pothole-liability law went into effect.

The Fall River man was blinded in one eye after a chunk of concrete smashed through his windshield last spring.

Two weeks earlier, Droz could have filed a claim for up to $50,000.

The new law leaves him with fewer options.

Droz says he was driving April 17th when a piece of concrete the size of a softball came flying through his windshield.

It hit him in the head and opened a deep gash on the left side. He lost his left eye.
