Municipal Liability

According to legal definitions; “municipal liability refers to any civil liability imposed on a public corporation, local, city or state government premises for any injury caused or for any harm caused by their employees. These constitute damages resulting from an injury caused by the municipality’s negligent violation of another person’s rights when they act in a governmental rather than a proprietary role”.
In our day-to-day life we come into contact with some form of governmental office. It is these offices that build and maintain our roads, our parks, provide security for us and our families, in essence allow us as a community to grow and develop. However, when these offices fail the result can cause tremendous harm to the public.

The municipal liability attorneys at the Law Office of Igor Tarasov Esq. have be assisting in filing successful claims for:

  • Subway or bus accidents
  • Public pool accidents
  • City-owned vehicular accidents
  • School accidents
  • Government owned hospital accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents on government premises

While municipal liability insurance may cover many of these types of litigation, there are special guidelines, which are applicable for any litigation filed against any municipal or government offices. However, in a society that has become so litigious, government entities have become a target for many lawsuits, since it is professed that they have “cavernous pockets” to pay substantial compensatory damages.
