If it is a city pothole you must file a Notice of Claim against the city within 90 days of the occurrence to initiate a claim. If the claim cannot be resolved then a lawsuit must be filed within 1 year and 90 days of the occurrence. You need an experienced attorney to represent you either way (you will have to appear for a deposition if against the city). We would need to determine who is the proper party to file the claim against. For an absolutely FREE consultation please contact me at 347-702-4133 (office on Monday) or by email at [email protected] (anytime).

Yours truly,

Depends on where you fell. As noted above, different rules and time frames when it's a public road or sidewalk versus something on private property (like a parking lot). Speak with a lawyer and, if possible, bring photos of the accident scene (broad and close views) at your consultation. Best, M. E. Zuller
