Kentucky law requires notice be served on all cities of a slip/fall claim involving an accident on a city sidewalk or other thoroughfare.
Don't miss the 90-day notice or your claim may be lost.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident or trip and fall accident in Kentucky, you and your attorney may have a very short time deadline looming. In any such case where the defect involved a Kentucky city street, sidewalk or other thoroughfare, notice must be given in writing to the mayor of the city and/or the city clerk and/or board of alderman within 90 days of the injury. This notice provision is mandatory.
The Kentucky Statute Notice Statute is Mandatory.
Kentucky Courts will enforce this very short notice requirement. Act quickly on all Kentucky slip and fall cases.
The notice statute sets out the requirements of the notice:
KRS 411.110 - Action against city for injury from defect in thoroughfare - Service of notice: "No action shall be maintained against any city in this state because of any injury growing out of any defect in the condition of any bridge, street, sidewalk, alley or other public thoroughfare, unless notice has been given to the mayor, city clerk or clerk of the board of aldermen in the manner provided for the service of notice in actions in the Rules of Civil Procedure. This notice shall be filed within ninety (90) days of the occurrence for which damage is claimed, stating the time of and place where the injury was received and the character and circumstances of the injury, and that the person injured will claim damages therefor from the city.
