Third Party Claims

Youngstown State University is owned and governed by the State of Ohio. Under Ohio law, a Commercial General Liability claim that seeks to impose financial liability upon the state may be asserted only in the proper forum and in accordance with the procedure provided for by the Court of Claims of Ohio per the Ohio Revised Code (2743.03). It is not until a claim has been filed and is pending in the appropriate forum (Court of Claims) that the University and its insurance carrier possess the authority to compromise and settle a claim. 

Please visit the Ohio Court of Claims website for instructions on filing a claim.
