Sewage back-ups are not an uncommon experience in Oklahoma. And the City knows this. They also know there’s a select few of us – Sewer Lawyers, as we’re called – that reject the unacceptable excuses the government gives for refusing to compensate our clients.
When such a problem strikes, knowing what to do next can be overwhelming. In addition to having a disgusting mess on your hands and potentially dealing with the loss of material possessions, your property could experience substantial — and costly — damage.
Has the City denied your claim? Don’t worry quite yet…
The City does not have the final say. The jury does. The reason it is important to get in contact with us is because the City denying your claim during the 90-day pre-litigation claims process doesn’t mean they will ultimately escape liability. But they won’t come right out and pay you. You need a trial lawyer who can and will take the city to battle and effectively try a 3-day to 2-week long jury trial. We won’t roll over for any lowball settlement.
Generally, City employees are trained to deny responsibility and not do anything to assist the homeowner with clean-up; we see it happen all the time.
For example, in 2020 when our clients were told by the city of Durant that the City was not liable for a sewer backup that resulted in the destruction of our clients home, they turned to us.
After continued pushback and denial of fault from the City, we continued to fight back. This case went to jury trial where we obtained a $400,000.00 verdict for our clients in Durant, Oklahoma.
