Your Personal Injury Attorneys in San Diego for Public Entity Falls

Public entities include government buildings, roadways, and accidents involving a government-owned vehicle and a government employed operator. If you experience a personal injury due to a public entity’s negligence, the case is different from an ordinary premise liability case. However, with an experienced attorney’s help, you can still receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Public Entity Falls and Statute of Limitations

One example of the difference in a case involving a public entity in California is that state law only gives you six months from the time of the injury to make your claim. For other types of personal injury cases, the statute of limitations can be a year or two or even more. So time is of the essence when your injury involves the negligence of a public entity.

Remember that you can receive compensation for your existing medical bills. Still, if you are undergoing ongoing care for the injuries sustained, you will want this to be a part of the settlement. You also need to think about lost wages and other damages.
