If the City of San Bernardino properties have irregularities on the walking or sidewalk surfaces, have irregular or bumpy mats, carpets or indoor rugs and runners, or have unstable elevations (such as from curb to walkway) – then it follows someone will fall under these negligent conditions.

If you have fallen because of loose carpeting on treads, or overly polished flooring in the city public buildings in the City of San Bernardino, you need to give our law office a call.

What Are the Steps to Filing a Claim Against a City in California?

If you are injured by someone who works as an employee with a city agency in California, or are making a claim against a government agency from a personal injury on city property, you need to file the proper paperwork to initiate your claim. You will first receive the agency Claim for Damages form, and fill it out. Then, you have to submit this form by certified mail, return receipt request to ensure proof of delivery to the appropriate agency, within 6 months of the date of your accident that incurred personal injuries.

Next you will get a letter from the agency advising that the claim was approved for payment of your expenses or denied. In the event the claim was approved, you will be paid and the case will be settled. If the claim is denied by the city agency, you need to go to small claims court within 6 months of the time you were denied your claim. If the agency refuses to reply to your claim in 45 days, it is effectively denied, and you can go to court within 2 years of the date of your claim.

In Small Claims Court, you need to file an SC-100 Plaintiff’s Claim form, pay the filing fee, show your denial letter and proof of mailing. You’ll be given a court date to appear for the case, and you will want the most experienced attorneys possible on your side at that point. This is why you need to call our office immediately, if you are injured in an accident on city grounds, from a city employee, or as a result of the negligence of a city worker or agency.
