If you think the road surface may have caused your accident, contact your lawyer. You may have a cause of action against the materials supplier or the governmental entity responsible for the work. If you don't want to pursue legal action, and you just want to notify the road commission of a potential problem, then go ahead and contact them directly. Unfortunately, unless they are threatened with a legal action, it's unlikely that they will do anything.
Resurfacing can result in unreasonably slick road surfaces. One place I was working resurfaced the parking lot over a weekend. Everyone showed up for work on Monday, no problem. During the day it rained, and when work let out at 5, people were sliding all over the place. It was like a skating rink.
Sorry about your accident, and again, if you want a shot at recovering damages and getting a dangerous situation fixed, see a lawyer before you start calling people. Best of luck!
