Practice Areas > Government Negligence

The lawyers at Friedman & Moses have represented countless clients in claims against municipalities and the State including cases against the City of New York and its agencies, the State of New York and the various counties within the State.

While most of these claims involve common accident scenarios, i.e. car accidents, construction accidents, slips, trips and falls, there are unique qualities to bringing claims against municipalities that require an expertise not possessed by most attorneys. Additionally there are specific cases that may only be brought against these entities, such as:

  • Defective, dangerous, and/or broken sidewalks
  • Improper signage
  • Defective roadway design
  • Subway and railroad accidents
  • Negligent security at public buildings
  • False imprisonment and/or malicious prosecution
  • Bus accidents
  • Property damage and/or takings by the government

In light of the unique nature of cases against the State and/or municipal entity, if you or someone you know has been harmed by the State or a municipal agency, you must act fast and consult a knowledgeable attorney. The attorneys at Friedman & Moses are experienced with these types of matters and are available to help you or someone you know with any claim they may have against the State or municipal authority.
