Can I file a slip and fall claim against a city or county?
When we get calls from clients who have been injured because of defective or poorly maintained sidewalks, they ask us whether they have a potential claim against the city or the county here in the Clearwater area. The answer is usually yes. The county or the city that has the responsibility of maintaining those sidewalks have policies about that. Our law firm will get those policies and find out whether or not the city or the county properly complied with their own policies to maintain those sidewalks in a safe way. Usually, a problem on a sidewalk does not happen quickly or overnight. Usually it’s because, over time, the sidewalk becomes uneven or becomes deteriorated in some respect, and that’s usually not something that happens quickly. We have actually had great success in making recoveries for our clients who were injured because of those dangerous conditions on sidewalks.
