When to Hire a Government Liability Attorney
Government Liability is a term used to refer to cases whereby a government agency or an employee is deemed to be at fault for your injury. Instances of government liability can range from cases involving a police car or another type of emergency vehicle that is operated with negligence that results in an accident, or it can involve a 911 emergency call response that is either slow, poorly handled or never arrives at all. Another type of case involves improper maintenance and planning of our government buildings and public roadways that lead to an injury due to a defect in the construction of the building or the implementation of an inadequate security plan within municipal building. This is known as a “Construction Defect” case.
Government liability is also familiar to the public since it includes cases that involve police misconduct such as police brutality or false arrests. A civil rights violation pertaining to the denial of specific permits and licensing that is based upon a person’s race or ethnic background is another type of case that falls under this term.

It is essential to have a law firm that has as much experience in handling government liability cases as the Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law team when you are dealing with this type of situation. For example, there are things you may not know about filing a lawsuit against a government entity such as being required to submit a Notice of Claim letter within 180 days of the injury to the involved municipality’s risk management section. Failure to submit this letter means that you have waived your rights to sue the involved government entity and may never see restitution for your or a loved one’s pain and suffering. In some instances, there are certain exceptions such as in the instance that you did not know about the injury being caused by the government entity until after the 180 days had already passed.
Once again, it is critical for you to choose a skilled law firm, one that can competently handle your case by guiding you through complicated legal procedures, such as Hirsch & Lyon Accident Law.
