Learn More: Filing a Claim

Information about filing a claim.

The Risk Management Division of the City of Albuquerque is governed by the New Mexico Tort Claims Act.  This law defines where potential claims should be sent, the areas of the City’s potential responsibilities, and, under what circumstances the City may be liable for a particular loss.  Your Tort Claim Notice must be sent to the Mayor’s office and, in most cases, must be received within ninety (90) days of the incident date.  After receipt of your Tort Claim Notice an investigation will be conducted to determine if the City negligently caused your alleged damages.  All Tort Claims will be objectively evaluated.
