Car Accident Lawsuit Against Governmental Entity

If you have been injured by a governmental entity, you only have 6 months from the date of the accident to file a proof of claim with the governmental entity. Filing a claim with a governmental entity is different than filing a lawsuit in court. Because the government makes the laws, they make laws to protect themselves, like the claim filing requirement. If you fail to file a proof of claim within 6 months, your case is done, you cannot recover any money.

Morales Law has experience filing proof of claims and lawsuits against governmental entities such as the City of Santa Barbara, County of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Metorpolitan Transit District (MTD), City of Ventura and others.

If you have been injured by a governmental entity or government employee, you only have 6 months after the accident to file a proof of claim.
