At NY, we frequently receive calls from injured people who believe a state or local government agency is the reason for their injuries. It would be best if you worked with an experienced and talented litigator in cases involving dangerous conditions on public property because there are several legal nuances that your attorney must be aware of to present a claim against a public entity successfully.
Injured In New York?
City and state governments are responsible for dangerous conditions on public property. As a result, if these conditions are not properly addressed, any accident, injury, or death that occurs will be the responsibility of the city or state government.
If the property had a foreseeable risk and the victim used it with due care, legal action could be taken for any resulting accident. This law applies to accidents that occur at the following locations:
- Concert halls
- Highways Parks for the public

In any public entity claim, time frames are much shorter, and you must file a claims notice with the responsible government agencies within 6 months of the injury. Your claim may be permanently barred if you do not file your claims notice timely. And because of the shortened time frames, you must contact an experienced attorney immediately following your injury.
