Long Island & New York City Municipal Liability Attorneys

Suing A New York Municipality

Municipal governments control a great deal of the world we interact with on a daily basis. When there is an accident involving something that they are in control of and an injury occurs, it can be difficult to hold a municipality responsible without the representation of counsel that has experience specifically pursuing claims against municipalities. It is critical that you begin working to preserve your right to compensation after you have been injured on municipal property or by a municipal employee. To successfully pursue a claim against a municipality requires that you file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of your being injured. Following that, you have one year to commence a lawsuit based on your injury.

At Levine and Wiss, our municipal liability lawyers understand what it takes to succeed with a claim for damages when suing a New York municipality. We have more than 40 years of combined experience helping those who have been injured to secure the compensation that they need and deserve.

Our experience includes having previously defended insurance companies. That experience gives our firm an insider’s edge when facing a municipality’s insurer. We can construct strategies that are designed to succeed and be well prepared to deal with whatever tactics an insurance company chooses to employ.

Some common examples of accidents or injuries that a municipality may be responsible for include:

  • Trip-and-fall accidents on an uneven, cracked or defective sidewalk
  • Accidents involving municipal vehicles such as garbage trucks or police vehicles
  • Accidents in parks or other public property
  • Slip and fall accidents on public sidewalks
