Areas of Municipal Liability
Like many other areas of law, municipal liability can be highly complex. Generally speaking, municipal liability includes liability arising from:
• Maintenance and other repair issues relating to municipal highways, roadways and sidewalks
• Conduct of municipal police services, including claims of negligent investigation and excessive use of force
• Other municipal emergency services
• Issues relating to the removal of ice and snow from highways, roadways and sidewalks and the applicability of the Minimum Maintenance Standards
Damages or injuries resulting from negligence or unjust action on the part of a municipality under any of the above areas are common reasons for municipal liability claims, though given the wide jurisdiction of municipalities and differences from one to another, other areas may be included under municipal liability. Some of these claims have strict time limits to provide written notice of the potential claim and statutory limitation periods must always be complied with.
