Suing a City After an Accident

From East Coast to West Coast, thousands of personal injury reports are filed against cities every day. If you've found that you were injured in a city and you believe the government was at fault, you might be able to file a personal injury claim against the city.

Filing a suit against a city can be very challenging. Every city has its own statute of limitations on how long you have to file a claim, and these are typically much shorter than a usual personal injury claim statute of limitations. For example, a state may have a two-year statute of limitations for filing a claim in most examples, but requires that you start your personal injury claim in just 30 days when filing against a city.

Every city is different, so be sure to read more information on your specific city and learn the process for starting your claim.

If you are ever filing a claim against a city, be sure to speak with a personal injury attorney. Claims against cities are notoriously challenging, so you will need all of the help you can get to win your claim. Personal injury attorneys are not paid unless you win your case.
