Government Liability Attorney in Phoenix, AZ
When to Hire a Government Liability Attorney
When a government agency or employee is at fault for your injury, this is called government liability. Some examples of government liability include motor vehicle accidents with police cars or other emergency vehicles operated with negligence. Other examples are a 911 emergency dispatcher slow to respond, handling a call for help inappropriately, or not providing a dispatch of emergency services at all. Improper maintenance or planning of government buildings or roadways are included under this category of government liability, as are construction defects leading to injuries or inadequate security planning and implementation in municipal buildings.
Police misconduct has become more familiar to the public over recent years. These issues are matters of government liability, too. Such cases may include false arrest, police brutality or other allegations. Denial of specific permits and licensing due to the applicant’s race or ethnic background is also a type of government liability, a civil rights violation.

Government Liability Requires Skilled Legal Representation
For government liability cases, it is critical that you have an experienced law firm with a history of these types of claims. There are special nuances to government entity-involved lawsuits, such as the requirement of a Notice of Claim letter being submitted within 180 days of the injury. That letter must be provided to the involved municipality’s risk management division. Failure to do this voids your rights to sue the government entity involved in your matter. That means you may never see restitution for pain and suffering. There are exceptions to this rule, such as when you do not know your injury was caused by a government entity until beyond the 180 days.
This is just one example of why it is so important that you have a skilled law firm on your side. You need competent handling of your case and smooth guidance through these complex legal procedures.
