There are many kinds of municipal liability cases. Examples include falldown incidents on municipal properties such as sidewalks and inside buildings, negligent security inside municipal buildings, auto accidents involving government vehicles, improper roadway design, bus and train incidents, and injuries that occur inside city schools because of inadequate supervision or security.

Successfully prosecuting a case against municipalities or government entities involves multiple, strict filing deadlines including the requirement to file a “notice of claim” within 90 days of an incident occurring. In addition, identifying the correct agency or entity to sue can be confusing and complicated. For these reasons, it is essential to hire an experienced municipal lawyer immediately after an injury occurs.
