Tort Claims

If you have a tort claim against the City, Indiana law requires you to first file a Notice of Tort Claim with the City before you may file a suit in court. The Notice must be filed within 180 days of the incident. Once filed, the City has 90 days to review the Notice and any documentation you attach, and respond with an approval or denial of your claim. A claim is deemed denied if the City does not respond within 90 days of receiving notice. Download a Notice of Tort Claim (PDF).
