Claims Against the City and Counties of New York

Personal Injury Lawsuits Against New York City

In a metropolitan area as large as New York City, it should come as no surprise that the local city and county governments are so frequently named as defendants in personal injury lawsuits. Whenever someone is injured in a subway accident, bus accident, in a public school, or on any public property — any good personal injury lawyer will make sure to name the proper government authority as a defendant in the case.

But, does your lawyer understand how these government agencies operate when they are faced with litigation? Does your personal injury attorney know the special rules and regulations that apply when an injured person seeks financial compensation from an entity like the transit authority, the Board of Education, Con Ed or another utility company?
