Municipal Negligence

As a resident of Green Bay or another community in the surrounding area, you pay a variety of taxes to your local government. These taxes are designated for various purposes, but they are to be used for the benefit of a municipality and its residents. Some of these funds are spent on roadways, some are devoted to public parks, and so on. While a municipal government may be attempting to cater to a variety of local needs and interests, it is important that the responsible parties within its administration do not lose sight of ensuring that public safety remains a priority.

If you have been harmed in an accident that appears to have been caused by municipal negligence or which could have been prevented through the exercise of a reasonable degree of care by your local government, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate. You may be able to gain financial compensation for damages related to your accident.

Roadways and More

Municipal negligence is often a factor in motor vehicle accidents caused by roadway defects. But there are also a number of other ways that municipal negligence could prove harmful to a city’s residents. Adequately upholding the following responsibilities is crucial to the municipal promotion of public safety:

  • Roadway maintenance
  • Maintaining public buildings
  • Maintaining public facilities
  • Supervision in public schools
  • Maintaining public health
  • Maintaining an adequate police force and other emergency services

Government agencies affect your daily life in number of ways. If these agencies and officials do not keep up with their responsibilities you may be wrongfully injured.
