Can I sue a city or county for my premises liability injury?
I’m often asked, if you are injured on a public property of some kind, including city, county, or federal property, can you sue? Yes, you can. Where you sue and how you sue may be affected by what the public entity is. For instance, if it’s in a certain county, you’re going to have to file your lawsuit in that county, but you can still sue. Now, there will be caps on damages, as well. You have to take that into consideration. If you trip and fall at the post office, you can file a claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act against the post office, and you can sue the post office under those circumstances. I had a law partner many years ago that fought successfully against the post office in a case. It can be done, and it will be done.
You need to take into account that there may be caps on damages if you sue a public entity. We can figure that out. It also may be affected by the insurance they have, which may affect the cap also. Take those things into account. We have to look at every case based on the individual merits of that case, and we’re here to do that. Give us a call in Cheyenne, Wyoming if you have a question. We do cases all over the state of Wyoming.
