Government Claims

Conroe Government Claim Injury Lawyer

Tenacious Representation You Can Trust

Do you need a government claim injury attorney? Recovering compensation for injuries associated with government negligence is possible, but the process can vary between different governmental entities. Cases are often lengthy and complicated, and it’s important to understand that injury claims involving government entities are more complex than claims involving private citizens or businesses.

After any kind of injury resulting from government negligence, it’s critical to get in touch with a government claim attorney in Conroe. Cases involving governmental claims are time-sensitive due to notice provisions. So, the sooner you get in touch with a lawyer, the better.

Notice Provisions

If you have a claim against the government, it’s essential to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer immediately. All government entities have “notice provisions.” Notice provisions can vary from county to county, state to state, and even up to the federal level. In other words, they’re provisions or guidelines that stipulate the time period and notice process that a victim must observe and comply with to file an injury claim.

The victim must put the government on notice of the claim within a certain time period. Some of these provisions are as short as 90 days, and some are as long as 6 months. The attorney investigating your claim can determine what provision may apply to your claim and ensure that it is complied with.

Claims Against the Federal Government

Under English Common Law, there was a time when, thanks to Sovereign Immunity, it was virtually impossible to sue the government or hold governmental entities accountable for their negligent actions. Although we’re not still observing the legal principle of “the king can do no wrong,” we still have some of that English Common Law coloring our modern laws associated with suing governmental entities.

Under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), it is possible to sue the federal government, but there are strict guidelines regarding how you can bring a claim.

Claims Against State & Local Governments

It is important to understand how statutes and laws vary depending on where you were when you were hurt and what governmental entities were involved. States, counties, towns, municipalities, school boards, housing authorities, and other governmental entities have their own sets of statutes governing the rights to bring injury claims and file lawsuits. Notice provisions and other guidelines vary from county to county and state to state.

Governmental Claims & Premises Liability

Just like businesses, governmental entities have a duty to ensure their properties are safe and free of defects. Where premises liability is concerned, a governmental entity owes the same duty of care as everybody else. This includes government offices, public parks, playgrounds, and other properties that are owned, operated, and maintained by the government.
