[W]hen you bring a claim against the municipality, you have to give them notice of your intention to bring a claim within 90 days. If you don’t...your case is over.
Garden City, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
Tom Foley, a personal injury attorney at Foley Griffin, explains that police officers, ambulance drivers, and firemen have a different level of care when driving to an emergency. Despite this, they are required to look out for others on the road. According to Foley, “If they are [going to an emergency], they have to have their lights and their sirens on. We’ve seen cases where either the police officer, the fireman, or the ambulance driver is not going to an emergency, or they aren’t driving with their lights and sirens. In those cases, we’ve been successful in bringing a claim against the municipality. [...] It’s very important to contact us right away. The reason being is because, when you bring a claim against the municipality, you have to give them notice of your intention to bring a claim within 90 days. If you don’t...your case is over.”
