Circumstances giving rise to claims against government entities and employees are virtually infinite: bus accidents, a fall at a public park, a soldier’s injury caused by another soldier, law enforcement officers carrying out their duties, etc. State and Federal laws offer a variety of protections for government entities facing these claims. Asserting those protections requires a working knowledge of the applicable laws and regulations in addition to the policies and procedures which may have informed the government or employee’s actions.
The involvement of self-insurance, private insurance, and other protections for the involved parties can add further confusion to the already complex questions surrounding government liability and sovereign immunity. If you are a government entity or employee faced with a claim or lawsuit for damages, the lawyers of Abbey, Adams, Byelick & Mueller, LLP are available to answer your questions and provide the defense you need whether in Florida or Federal court.
