Can I Sue The City?

If you are injured due to dangerous property conditions in New York, you may have the right to sue the negligent property owner. But what if the property owner is the city or a government agency?

The answer is yes, you can sue the city. However, the city has many resources to defend itself from personal injury claims, and strict deadlines that can prevent you from filing a claim. Without the help of an experienced attorney, you may not receive any money.

Municipal Negligence Claims In New York City

Our lawyers handle all types of negligence claims against New York City agencies and governmental bodies. Here are just a few examples:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents on city property
  • Injuries in city parks
  • Injuries from falling tree limbs
  • Injuries in public schools
  • Public housing injuries, including assaults
  • Police brutality and false arrest claims
  • Medical malpractice in city hospitals

Why it's important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. For claims against municipal entities, injured people must give prompt "notice" of the claim within a very brief time. Depending on the type of incident, this could be as little as a few days after an incident. For that reason, it is imperative that you contact an experienced lawyer as soon after the accident as possible. Any mistakes or delays could result in denial of your claim.
