Filing a claim for damages

A written claim must be filed for damages to an individual or property and it must include specific information. To assist you in meeting those requirements, the city has prepared a claim form.

Completed claim forms should be mailed or hand-delivered to the City Clerk's Office along with copies of invoices, receipts or pictures documenting your damages.

City Clerk's Office
7th floor Renton City Hall
1055 South Grady Way
Renton, Washington 98057

A copy of the claim will be sent to Risk Management, which is responsible for moving the claim to our insurance carrier, when necessary, for investigation and possible settlement. The claims adjuster will investigate the claim and determine if the city is legally responsible for damages and, if so, for what amount.

Generally, the city will only pay for damages when it can be shown that the city was negligent in its operations. Claimants will receive written of action taken within 45 days after the claim was filed.
