We have handled many different types of cases brought against the government, city, state or federal. Anyone who has suffered loss due to the negligence of a government employee or official should seek legal consultation quickly. Various laws dictate the time within which claims must be made, the procedure for bringing the claim and whether the claim may be brought in the court system or must be brought through some other administrative process.
Here are just a few of the types of claims that might arise:
Roads and Sidewalks
Pot holes in the roads and cracked or ruptured sidewalks frequently cause injury. The State or Town may be responsible. This type of claim must start with the State or Town receiving a legal notice within a set period of time. That's an important reason for hiring us as soon as possible.
Post Office and Postal Workers
The United States Post Office is responsible when a fall at the post office is caused by an employee's negligence or fault. Drivers of postal vehicles must drive safely and when they are negligent, the United States government is responsible. Two case examples: A serious injury resulted when a postal truck backed over a man who was retrieving his mail at his mailbox; A multi-car collision occurred when a postal worker driving a federal mail truck cut-off an oil tanker truck on the highway.
State and Town Vehicles
When a State or Town vehicle is driven carelessly and someone is hurt, the State or Town is responsible. The same requirement that private drivers adhere to the rules of the road applies to government drivers. When the driver of a Town truck ran into a light pole in the middle of a parking lot, his passenger, a co-worker recovered from the Town with our help.
