Can I sue a city or county for my premises liability injury?
Recently, someone in Richmond County, NC called me and explained to me that the sidewalks hadn’t been maintained properly. They were walking forward, looking ahead, and before they knew it, they had tripped and fallen, seriously injuring their arm. It turns out they’re going to have to have surgery on their arm because of this bad fall.
In North Carolina, if a city or a county is responsible for maintaining the sidewalks, you can bring a lawsuit; however, when you bring a lawsuit, you have to know certain special things about suing a city and suing a county. The first thing you need to do is that you have to have an attorney that has experience in suing a city or a county so that those special things that occur in a lawsuit against a city or a county are included in your lawsuit. Obviously, the second thing you need to do, as well, is you need to go and follow up with your doctor’s care and do follow doctor’s orders. That’s real important.
Those are really two of the most important things you need to do when you’re confronted in a situation where you have to sue the city or you have to sue a county. Suing a city and a county is different from suing private entities. You need an attorney that has some experience in doing that. Our firm has sued a county before.
