Pursuing An Injury Claim Against A Municipality

If you have been injured in a government building or facility, there are important things you should know about filing a personal injury claim. In Connecticut and New York, government entities are held to a different standard of liability for personal injury and wrongful death claims. In addition, you will be required to file a Notice of Claim within a certain number of days of the injury, or you may forfeit your right to sue for damages.
