90 Day Written Notice Requirement For Slip And Falls In Municipal Sidewalks

Cases involving falls on defective city or town sidewalks have short notice periods for any claim against the city. Under Connecticut General Statutes Section 13a-149,written notice with certain required information must be given to the clerk of the city, town or borough responsible for maintaining the sidewalk, within 90 days of the incident. Because of the short time deadline, it is important to retain an attorney immediately. If proper written notice is not filed within 90 days from the date of the injury, you will be prohibited from bringing a lawsuit against the responsible town or city.
