In the State of New York, if you are injured and the negligent party is a municipality, such as a village, a town, or a city, you will have to serve a Notice of Claim on the municipality within 90 days of the occurrence.
A Notice of Claim is applicable when you need to sue a public entity.
The Notice of Claim should detail the problem that injured you, the date, the time, and the place of the occurrence.
A Notice of Claim is a prerequisite to the start of a lawsuit.
You must satisfy that prerequisite before you start a lawsuit.
