Question:

Can I sue a city or county for a slip and fall injury on a sidewalk?

Answer:

Sidewalk Slip and Fall LiabilityI had a man recently call me about falling on a defective sidewalk on Broad Street. He wanted to bring a case against the city of Augusta. If you’re watching this video, you may have questions about defective sidewalks or curbs. These are the tips that I told that client. I’m happy to share them with you as well.

Cases against cities, counties and municipalities are a little different than those against a normal property owner. There are certain notices that need to be given to city, counties, states and municipalities to put that municipality on notice before a lawsuit can be filed. Experienced lawyers that bring cases against cities, counties and municipalities know about these notices, such as ante litem notices. In my client’s case, the city had received warnings about this defective sidewalk that was on the 500 block of Broad Street, and we were able to successfully bring a case against the city.
