ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Pothole Patrol gets flooded with emails from drivers who's cars suffered damage after hitting potholes.

Getting a city, county or the state to pay for damage is never easy, but there are a few things you can do to help your case.

1. Take pictures of the pothole and the damage.

2. Document the incident and keep all receipts.

3. Find out if where the pothole was in order to make the claim with the correct municipality. Was it DeKalb, City of Atlanta, or was it on a GDOT state route?
