Municipal Liability

Municipal liability litigation involves cases and claims against a state, city, town, or county. There are numerous types of municipal liability cases, and with increasing numbers of dangerous situations in our cities and communities coupled with ignored safety precautions, municipal litigation cases are becoming more and more common. Our lives involve interaction and contact with various government agencies or entities each and every day. These agencies build and maintain our roads, create parks for our children, and provide facilities in which our kids can grow and learn. Breakdowns in these systems can cause serious injuries, and when they harm you or a loved one, you may have a valid municipal liability case.

Cases against government entities involve shorter deadlines and limitations. You must bring a Notice of Claim against a municipality within ninety days of the accident or your claim may be denied. Therefore, it is crucial you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your interests.
