Addressing Injuries or Losses Resulting from City or Municipal Negligence

Every individual has the right to their personal safety, particularly in public spaces. The city or county government is responsible for ensuring that these public areas are safe and secure.

When a person suffers an injury or harm in a public place, he or she can file a municipal liability lawsuit against the government for compensation. Many cities are covered with municipal liability insurance to protect them from situations like these.

Incidences of Municipal Liability Under Section 1983

Although not all injuries apply under a municipal liability definition, there are many incidences which could lead to a viable lawsuit, including:

  • If you were jogging at the local park and were injured while tripping on an open sewer and there was no sign to indicate that it was there
  • If you were to walk under a building that was under construction without signage to indicate that it was unsafe, and building materials fell on you resulting in head injuries
  • If you were injured due to broken sidewalks, neglected or poorly maintained roads, water main or sewer leaks, or any other hazard maintained by municipalities
  • If you were injured in an accident involving the acts or negligence of an on-duty city or municipal employee, such as a police officer

The governing body in the area is responsible for providing safety for all its citizens. If your injury can be proven to have occurred as a result of “policy” it may be similar to a well-known 1983 liability case referred to as “Monell Liability“. An injury sustained in a public building or space belonging to a city or county council can also be grounds for a municipal liability suit. In some instances, so can harm or injury caused by employees of the county or city. A personal injury and municipal liability lawyers will inform you on what your rights pertaining to municipal liability are and help you get reasonable compensation for your injury.
