File A Claim

If you have been involved in an accident and / or wish to file a claim against the City, it is necessary to submit a completed claim form. Upon receipt of the claim, a Claims Adjuster from the City’s third-party claims administrator will contact you. An investigation must be conducted by the claims adjuster before a final decision on liability and / or payment(s) will be made. This process can take two to or more weeks depending upon the nature of your claim.


Special Note: Sole authority to settle and/or pay claims rest with the claims administrator and/or the City Attorney’s Office. City employees are not authorized to determine liability or obligate the City for payment of a claim.
