Q: Can I Bring an Injury Claim or Suit Against the Government?
A: If your Dallas personal injury case involves the potential liability of a government entity or employee in Texas – for instance, you sustained a slip and fall injury due to a hazard on state-owned property – you cannot simply file against the government. Instead, you must file a formal claim with the appropriate governmental unit within six months of the underlying incident. The claim should include a description of the resulting damages, the time and place of the incident, and a summary account of what happened.
A claim against the government can be even more of a complex undertaking than a regular civil case. To ensure that you don't make any missteps and jeopardize your claim, get help from the knowledgeable Texas injury lawyers at The Law Office of WT Johnson.
