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.

When you call our law office, you will be connected with an attorney who is familiar with the City of Santa Clara claims department for filing an injury report. We will help you to file an injury report with the City of Santa Clara.

When a tree falls in the City of Santa Clara, there is a high risk that a person or people in general can be injured from the tree being felled by inexperienced people. A tree that needs to be maintained will not generally fall, if it has been managed and cared for properly over the years.

But a tree that has been neglected will have dead branches, “danglers” and dead limbs that are poised to fall and hurt someone walking underneath, and other issues with the tree. If a person who cuts down the tree improperly does so during peak walking seasons for pedestrians, then there is a high risk someone will be injured in this process. If you are injured by a tree falling, you need to call us immediately, to discuss the merits of your case and the extent of your personal injuries.
