Municipal Liability

Put Our Expertise to Work

Municipalities including Cities, Towns, and Villages are often involved in accidents of all types, including:

There are other quasi-municipal entities such as public benefit corporations like the New York City Transit Authority, the New York City Housing Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation.

When a municipality or public benefit corporation is involved with an accident, there are often very short time limitations for properly pursing a claim against the municipality. For example, there is a 90 day time limitation for filing a claim with the City of New York, the New York City Transit Authority, and other entities. If a notice of claim is not filed, the claim is not preserved, and the injured person is prohibited from filing a lawsuit against the municipal or public benefit entity.

This is why it is important to consult an attorney immediately following an accident where such entities might be involved to preserve your right to bring a claim against the entity or entities responsible for the injury.
