A notice of claim can be filed with the City of Corpus Christi for up to 180 days of the date of injury or property damage.

Please read the following instructions carefully before submitting your claim.

(1) You may use the Notice of Claim Form to file a claim or may choose to include all required information in a letter format. Your claim should be submitted to the City Secretary.   

(2) The receipt of a claim is not an admission by the City of liability for the alleged damage or injury, nor is it a promise to pay for the injury or property damage. Once the claim form is received, it will be forwarded to the City’s Legal Department/Risk Management Division where a Claims Adjuster will contact you at the address and /or phone listed on the Notice of Claim Form.  It is our goal to resolve your claim as quickly possible.

(3) The receipt of proper documentation to substantiate your claim will allow the claims adjuster to quickly assess liability. The claims adjuster may ask you to provide:

       (a) Medical reports/medical statements and itemization of charges;

       (b) Fully itemized estimate of damages; and or repairs

       (c) A complete description of damage property including

              (i) Photographs (if available)

              (ii) Witness statements; and

              (iii) Police reports (if applicable).

4) Your claim is not considered submitted, nor proper notice received, unless the attached Notice of Claim Form is completed and signed, or unless the same information is submitted in a letter format.

Please submit your claim within 180 days of the injury and/or property damage.
