What Is a Governmental Injury Claim?
The terms “public entity”, “governmental entity” and “government agency” are generic terms referring to government corporations, agencies, authorities, and judicial officers. When you are injured on local or federal government property, or by a government entity, or even by a public employee acting within the scope of their employment, you must, in most cases, file what is known as a governmental claim within a short time frame or you may lose the right to recover damages for your injuries. A governmental claim is a special demand made to the responsible governmental agency demanding that they pay you for your losses and injuries. This is not a lawsuit but it is required in most cases before you can proceed with a court case against the governmental entity.
The governmental agency must then either accept or deny your claim within a specific timeframe defined by statute. If they accept your claim, the governmental entity will pay your claim amount or in some cases negotiate a different amount. However, the vast majority of governmental claims are denied or the governmental entity does not respond at all. The governmental agency knows that it is difficult to recover damages from them because the laws so heavily favor the government. If your claim is denied or if the governmental agency fails to respond to your demand, the next phase will likely be litigation which means filing a lawsuit against the government.
