Common Accidents Involving a Public Entity

A public entity is defined as any federal, state, or local government body. This includes government corporations, agencies, authorities, and judicial officers.

If you sustain injuries on local or federal government property, by a government entity, or by a public employee acting within the scope of their employment, you have a right to pursue a claim.

Common accidents involving a public entity can include:

  • Poorly maintained roadways
  • Slip & falls on government property
  • Collisions with city or government authority vehicles
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Negligent landscape maintenance

Government entities have a responsibility to maintain all common paths the public travel along. When their failure leads to you being injured, our accident lawyers force the insurance to take accountability and offer you what’s right.

The Statute of Limitations and Public Entity Cases

It can be vital to your recovery to open a claim as soon as possible after a public entity accident. This is because the statutes of limitations surrounding public entity accidents have strict deadlines.

Arizona law states claims of this type must be submitted within one (1) year of the accident. The law also requires a Notice of Claim to be filed. This measure requires an individual claiming liability against a public entity to submit a separate, preliminary claim to that entity within 180 days of their accident. A Notice of Claim must include:

  • Sufficient facts that support the claim
  • A specific amount for which the claim can be settled
  • Facts supporting the proposed amount

Don’t let these obstacles get in the way of your health. Our injury attorneys maximize your settlement offer while ensuring you also receive the best medical treatment you deserve. All at no upfront cost to you.
