Miscellaneous Government Negligence Lawyer
While it is true that you cannot sue the government for property damage or injury because of the sovereign immunity doctrine, you can file a lawsuit against the government in certain situations under the Federal Claims Tort Act. Governmental agencies and bodies are in charge of many city and state entities, such as recreational parks, roadways, and buildings. When someone is injured or loses their life as a result of these areas not being properly maintained or made safe for the general public, the government may be held accountable. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a car accident involving a state-owned vehicle, slipped and fell at a government office, or have been hurt in any other capacity due to the negligence of state or local government employees, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.

Understanding the Federal Tort Claims Act
The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) is a statute enacted by the United States Congress in 1946 that allows private parties to sue to the United States in a federal court. This statute provides a limited waiver of the federal government’s sovereign immunity when its employees are negligent within the scope of their employment. It is important to keep in mind that, under the FTCA, the government can only be sued “under circumstances where the United States, if a private person, would be liable to the claimant in accordance with the law of the place where the act or omission occurred.” In order to file a claim against the government for negligence, you must do so within two years of the situation.
