Complex Personal Injury Litigation Against Municipal Entities

Bringing a lawsuit against a municipal entity is much different from filing a suit against a private party. In some cases, the government is immune from certain lawsuits, and there are additional steps and filing deadlines not required in other civil claims. Further, the government does not respond to lawsuits as private parties do. In most cases, municipal entities are reluctant to settle, forcing every issue into intense litigation.

If you have been injured on government property or suffered any other injury as a result of negligence on the part of a municipal entity, it is critical to work with a legal team that has experience handling complex cases of this nature.

At Restivo & Murphy LLP, we have had great success handling injury and other claims against the government and municipalities, with a track record of significant verdicts and settlements. Our attorneys have more than 40 years of combined experience serving clients throughout the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Long Island, Suffolk County and Nassau County.
