Under section 604.1 of the Cities and Towns Act, the Town is not liable for damage caused by the presence of an object on the roadway, whether or not the object comes from a motor vehicle or is projected by a motor vehicle.
The Town is neither liable for damage caused by the state of the roadway to the tires or to the suspension system of a motor vehicle.
For the Town to be required to indemnify the claimant there must have been fault on the Town’s part and a causal link between the fault and the damages.
After review of the situation, the Town may not be held liable for the incident. It is therefore recommended to advise your insurance company.
The Town shall have the right to have its inspectors, investigators or experts examine, at any time, movable and immovable property which is the subject of a claim. The law stipulated that in some instances, the Town shall not be responsible for water damages in the absence of a check valve in good working order.
If you are dissatisfied with the decision of the Town or its insurer concerning your claim, you may, under Subsection (5) of Section 585 of the Cities and Towns Act, institute an action for damages against the Town within six (6) months after the date of incident.
