Claims Against Public Entities

Claims Against the Government

We Know How To Fight Back


Between 2008 and 2017, 13,848 people lost their lives and 53,383 people were seriously injured in intersections, interchanges, and other roadway access collisions on California roadways. Many of these collisions happened because dangerous roadway conditions played a significant part in causing the incident.

Public schools in California have allowed sexual predators to continue working as teachers, coaches, and classroom assistants despite knowledge of activities that should have put them on notice of the risks created for innocent children.

Public schools have also failed to follow state-mandated guidelines and statutes pertaining to the coaching and supervision of students involved in a wide-range of sports activities, leading to the needless injury and even death of student athletes. When children are hurt in such circumstances, these public school entities seek shelter from statutory immunities instead of owning up to their own complicity in conduct that led to harm.

Public transportation companies owned and operated by various cities and counties have also injured innocent passengers by the negligent operation of its vehicles, or by sub-standard inspections, repairs, and maintenance of buses, trains, subways, and similar transit vehicles.

Tragically, even law enforcement sometimes crosses the line, injuring and sometimes killing unarmed persons when other options were available. While this firm has tremendous respect and admiration for law enforcement personnel, we recognize when the conduct of officers was wrongful, and we take the necessary steps to protect the interests of our clients.

Whatever the agency involved, perhaps no kind of personal injury or wrongful death claim is more challenging than those against a local, state, or federal entity. Such entities are protected from litigation behind a virtual shield of state or federal immunities. They are well-funded, and their defense is typically handled by in-house attorneys who exclusively litigate lawsuits for the entity. It takes a special skill set and level of experience to prevail in entity cases.

With more than 35 years of experience, we know what it is like to fight a government entity who is in the wrong, from City Hall, the State of California, and federal agencies. We have the right personnel and the necessary financial resources that such a case requires. We have a proven track record of success in such claims.


Our attorneys protect the rights of injured people in Sacramento, in California, and in other states against a wide variety of public entities including:

  • California Department of Transportation
  • Police and Sheriff departments
  • Public elementary and high schools
  • County hospitals
  • Airports
  • Mass transit companies

Many client referrals for these kinds of entity cases come from other law firms because they know we can and will handle these claims. We understand these complicated processes.
