Occasionally, the party responsible for an accident or injury will be a public entity or government agency. Injuries that occur while riding a public bus, car accidents involving government vehicles, trip and falls on sidewalks, and abuse by a teacher are all examples of claims involving government entities.
California allows for claims against public entities in certain limited circumstances. While a public entity is usually held to the same standards of responsibility as a private individual or business, there are many conditions and procedural requirements for bringing a claim against a government entity. Because of the strict requirements for presenting a government claim, most public entities will employ hardball tactics in unfairly denying claims because they know that most claims against public entities can be defeated on technicalities.
