Emergency Vehicle Accident Attorneys Serving Georgia
If you have been injured in an auto accident caused by a government vehicle, it is critical that you take fast action. These are not like other motor vehicle claims. The laws that outline how these claims are handled — including the Federal Tort Claims Act and the Georgia Tort Claims Act — impose strict limitations on when claims can be filed. Wait too long and you may lose your opportunity to seek compensation.
At the law firm of Silvis, Ambrose, Lindquist & Coch, P.C., we have been partnering with accident victims in Georgia and throughout the tri-state area to get results since 1983. Our lawyers have the experience to take on the federal government, as well as state, county and city governments in auto accident claims. We will move quickly to make certain all deadlines are met and to protect your right to seek full and fair compensation for your injuries.
We Know the Law
In addition to the deadlines involved, there are many other differences between filing a motor vehicle accident lawsuit against an individual driver and filing a lawsuit against a government entity. We are familiar with all of the nuances, including the requirement that the government must first be given notice that a claim is to be filed.
Our attorneys handle government-owned emergency vehicle accidents of all types, including:
These cases are also unique because these emergency vehicles are allowed to violate traffic laws. They are allowed to speed and to run red lights, provided they demonstrate proper care when doing so. It is the failure to demonstrate proper care that leads to accidents.
Committed to Success in All Government Vehicle Accident Cases
In addition to emergency vehicle accident cases, we also handle cases involving all other government-owned vehicles, including:
- Bus accidents
- Utility truck accidents
- Garbage truck accidents
Some cases may simply involve ordinary cars or trucks owned by government entities.
