Can I file a claim for damages to a personal vehicle while legally parked in an assigned Mason parking lot? Post author By Mason Webmaster Post date July 17, 2013 A claim can only be considered if there is clear evidence that the damage occurred as a result of negligence on the part of the University or if a state owned vehicle can be identified as having caused the damage. ← May a non-state employee drive a state vehicle? Are they protected against liability claims if they do? → Is there insurance reimbursement for personal property that is lost, stolen, or damaged while being used for University business?
