Claims Against Public/Government Entities
If you are working as a police officer or other government employee, you are bound by certain laws and regulations above and beyond standard employment law. In many cases, you will need to file a ‘notice of claim’ within at least 60 days after the injury. The Law Office of David Azizi offers a number of services for those who need to file claims against public and government entities such as school districts, police stations or city and county offices. If you do not follow certain guidelines or rules that pertain to the federal, state and city government guidelines, you may not have a basis for your case.
Filing a lawsuit against the government can be a complex process; the Law Office of David Azizi has over ten years of experience representing clients that need assistance in bringing claims against their employer to court. If you have been a victim of discrimination, harassment or wrongfully terminated from your employer, you have certain rights and can file a claim against the offending party.
Common Claims Against Public or Government Entities
Knowing when the government or public entity is involved in an injury can be a ‘gray area’ so it’s important to obtain the assistance of a personal injury attorney to help assess the situation.
No government entities or offices are immune to the rules and regulations of employment law in the United States, but there are certain reporting laws that employees of these entities must comply with in order to file a legal claim. You may need to bring your case to court if you have experienced any of the following during your course of employment:
Wrongful termination for adhering to mandatory reporting law
Retaliation for filing a report
Discrimination in promotion
Violations of whistleblower laws
Retaliation for any protected activities
You may be entitled to file a claim against a public or government entity for circumstances that involve:
Employee of a government entity who has been negligent while operating a motor vehicle
Wrongful acts by school authorities or employee’s
Wrongful acts or omissions of any employee of the Federal Government
Al cases against the Federal government are controlled by the Federal tort Claims Act and must be brought in the Federal District Court where the plaintiff resides or the injury occurred. There is no right to a jury trial in these cases, and the case will be tried by a judge.
