Houston might only be responsible if the city had prior knowledge that a dangerous condition existed. If no one had reported the pothole before the accident then the city is probably off the hook.

Sucky!

I know exactly where you're talking about and could probably take you right to that hole.

Pursue the city.

Good luck and speedy recoveries to both the bike and your hubby.

Sorry to hear that. But I am glad your hubby is ok. that is what really matters, you can replace a bike but a human life, you cant.

this is why I have never rode my bike home, our roads look like a game of tetris. even in the car we swerve for two miles to get to our house avoiding the car swallowing potholes. Glad he is ok I would definately call the city.
