Cliff diving is a thrill seeker’s dream; the rush of falling into the water from a high cliff attracts thousands of people to the sport every year.

Can I sue the city for a cliff diving accident?
While a person can sue a city for certain kinds of accidents if the city’s negligence caused the accident and injuries, injury cases against the government are often more complicated than similar cases against private individuals. Negligence claims against a city are more difficult than a claim against a private individual because many states have laws that grant immunity to cities and the city’s employees for some negligent actions.
If the city knowingly left a part of a walking or hiking trail with a dangerous cliff unmarked and/or unprotected and a person falls and injures themselves then there may be a personal injury case. Contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your legal rights.Read More
