His is Ted Ravan from Ravan law and welcome to another Ted Talk Tuesday.
Today we’re talking about government claims which are claims that arise due to negligence from a government or public entity, couple examples or injuries from a car accident with a government vehicle like a police car or parking enforcement or injuries from tripping and falling on something like a sidewalk that’s maintained by a government entity.
Government claim cases differ significantly in that the timing of them is unique from other personal injury claims. In government claims. You have six months from the date of the injury to report your claim to the proper government entity. From there, that government entity has 45 days to respond. If they don’t respond within that time, then it is deemed to have been automatically rejected. If a case is rejected in that way or by a denial letter, then you have six months from that date to file your lawsuit or it is wave that is the statute of limitations for government claimed cases. That’s very different than the two-year statute limitations with other personal injury claims. Because of this unique timing schedule, it is important to work with an attorney who knows how to handle government claim cases and that you contact a qualified attorney immediately. At Ravan Law, we handle government claim cases on a regular basis and can help you if you’ve been injured due to a government entity.
