Lawsuits against governmental entities can arise when the government, through its agents or employees, make mistakes that seriously injure innocent people. When our government makes these types of mistakes, it is required by law, just like its own citizens, to be accountable for its errors and mistakes that cause harm to its citizens. That’s where we can help.
Government lawsuits involve any organization that is owned or operated by the state or federal government, including:
The government is responsible for its employees. Thus, mistakes and errors of government employees are, by law, the responsibility of their government employer. Because there are many restrictions, limitations, and exceptions to these rules, it is imperative that you consult a lawyer when you are considering bringing a lawsuit against any government entity.
At Tamaki Law, we know the law and are not fearful of governmental entities or their attorneys. Some of our largest settlements have involved claims against the state government for its failure to protect our clients. If you have a complaint against the government for its failure to protect you, which caused you serious injury or damage, then call us. We are experienced and skilled at holding the government accountable for its errors and mistakes. Contact us if you have questions about how to best proceed if you are unsure about government lawsuits.
