When the actions (or inactions) of a person or party directly cause injury, they must be held responsible for the harm inflicted. The government is not exempt from this standard. Unsafe conditions in government buildings, reckless government employees, and negligence in the upkeep of public spaces like roads or sidewalks are just a few situations where a local, state, or federal government could be held liable for your injury. If law enforcement, public transportation, or any number of other governmental agencies are fully or partially responsible for your suffering, a personal injury lawsuit may be appropriate.
Legal action against the government is, predictably, a difficult matter. Even in cases where responsibility is clear, plenty of obstacles are in place to prevent governmental agencies from shouldering liability. However, with the assistance of a knowledgeable, experienced personal injury attorney, you can obtain the compensation that you rightfully deserve. If you suffer injury at the fault of any governmental agency, contact the Law Office of Joseph M. Kar P.C. immediately. Swift action is crucial in these cases. Joseph M. Kar P.C. has the legal resources necessary to hold government agencies accountable to their own laws. Reach the office at 818-501-6930.
