How to File a Claim

The Town of Cumberland accepts petitions for claims for damages resulting from Town negligence. The Town considers claims for damages to mailboxes caused by Town plows, to tires caused by potholes on Town-owned roads, and other similar damages.

The Finance Subcommittee reviews and approves claims on behalf of the Town. Relevant departments are asked to provide comments to the Finance Subcommittee, so they have as much information as is possible.

The Town cannot accept petitions for damages that occur on state roads. Visit www.dot.ri.gov or call the Rhode Island Department of Transportation to inquire about damages caused by potholes or state plows on state roads. There is a very limited time period within which you may file a claim; we encourage you to act quickly.
