Municipal Liability

Municipal liability applies to any civil case in which the government is claimed to be at fault. There are several mechanisms in place that make legal claims against government agencies more difficult. An intricate set of laws, a shortened six-month statute of limitation, immunities provided by the California Tort Claims Act, and a rigid procedural code apply when you are pursuing municipal liability cases.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident involving municipal or governmental entities, we urge you to seek the help of a qualified and experienced attorney who can help explain your legal rights and options. Please contact us today for a FREE case evaluation.

When the Government is at Fault


Municipal liability cases cover a wide range of potential claims and can be brought against numerous government entities including state agencies, county and city governments, transportation authorities, etc. Common types of municipal liability cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Government equipment defects
  • Bus accidents
  • Accidents involving government vehicles
  • Other transportation liability issues
  • Casualty issues
  • Accidents caused by road work hazards
  • Other cases involving recklessness or negligence on behalf  of a government agency or employee

It is important to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can help you file the proper paperwork, protect your legal rights, and help you get the compensation you may be entitled to for your damages.
