Municipal Liability

The city where you live or work has a responsibility to its citizens and visitors: to keep them safe, to enforce laws and to protect them from such offenses as police brutality and false arrest. If you have been injured or a family member has suffered catastrophic injury or loss of life as a result of a police beating or a violent attack in a public school, contact the law offices of Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C.

New York Municipal Liability Attorneys

Our personal injury attorneys are ready to listen to your story and begin an investigation that may lead to the compensation you need and deserve after an injury or death that is the city's responsibility.

Our lawyers represent clients with municipal liability cases such as the following:

  • Delayed ambulance dispatch or ambulance delay resulting from misdirection among city streets, leading to serious injury or death for asthma, heart attack or stroke victims
  • Dispatch of the wrong type of ambulance, resulting in injury or death to patients whose conditions cannot be adequately treated without the proper advanced life support equipment and emergency care personnel
  • Police brutality or abuse, when suspects (often innocent) suffer beatings at the hands of police who use excessive force
  • False arrest, when police hold suspects for unreasonable lengths of time or conduct searches without probable cause
  • Violent attacks or slip-and-fall accidents in public schools where inadequate security or improper facility maintenance was the root cause

In municipal liability cases as in all personal injury cases, our attorneys strive to educate our clients while we diligently investigate and prepare cases involving injuries resulting from negligence by city agencies or personnel.
