|Can I sue a municipality if I am injured due to a faulty sidewalk or curb?|
A client contacted me, saying she had slipped and fallen on a raised sidewalk in Aiken, South Carolina. She asked me if she could make a claim for injuries. If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. I’ll share with you what I shared with that client.
It’s important to put the city of Aiken (or a county or state) on notice of a potential claim. There are certain rules and regulations about making claims in the state of South Carolina against city, county, and state governments. It’s called an ante litem notice, and you have certain time limits within which you need to let them know you’ve been injured.
There are also issues evolving around that government’s notice of the raised sidewalk. If the sidewalk had injured other people or there had been an inspection and it was supposed to be repaired and the government did not repair it, you may have a claim. If you’ve been injured on a sidewalk in the state of South Carolina, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
