Government Tort Claims

How often do people get injured due to the negligence of the government or some other public entity? All too often, right? In an attempt to limit the number of lawsuits filed against public agencies and/or entities, the legislature enacted what is now known as the Government Tort Claims Act. In order to successfully prosecute a claim under the GTCA, many notice and procedural requirements must be met. Therefore, in matters such as these, our firm's effective pleading strategies often result in summary judgment, saving our clients the expense and exposure of a trial. We thoroughly analyze each claim in order to assert all defenses and immunities contained in the GTCA which can often limit the exposure of individual employee defendants and/or the limitation of damages. If we may be of service in a matter you have become involved in, let us see how we may be able to help you.
