Municipal Liability Claims in New York
We Can Help You Navigate the Filing Rules for Municipal Entity Cases
For example, in a case brought against the City of New York, a Notice of Claim must be filed within 90 days of the date of the accident and the lawsuit must be commenced within 1 year and 90 days of the date of the accident. While there are some instances in which we have been successful in getting the Notice of Claim filing period extended , it is crucial that anyone with a potential claim against the City should contact a New York personal injury attorney immediately.
We have had extensive experience handling cases against the City and its agencies and also against the State of New York.
Personal injury cases against the City include cases brought as the result of actions of police officers, and other city workers, roadway and sidewalk accidents, cases against city hospitals, etc.
Types of Municipal Liability Cases
Cases we have handled include the following:
- $1.6 million dollar verdict for teacher injured in City school
- $3.75 million dollar settlement for infant injured in City hospital
- $255,000 for victim of police assault
Pursuing compensation in these types of cases can be highly complex and requires the help of a skilled and aggressive attorney who knows the laws and how to fight the system. Not just any attorney can be retained when it comes to these types of cases. That is why contacting Jeffrey J. Shapiro & Associates, with over 30 years experience, is the next step you need to take.
