What should I do if I have a claim against a government agency?
If you are injured because of a dangerous condition of public property or by the act or failure to act of a public employee you must submit a written claim not later than six months after the incident. It is important to file the claim with the appropriate agency. For example, if you file your claim against a county or the state when the property is in the control of a city you may lose your claim.
A lawsuit must be filed not later than six months after rejection of the claim. If no notice of rejection is given a lawsuit must be filed within two years from the date of the incident. We have experience with government entity claims and can help you avoid costly mistakes.
