Government Employee Negligence


Attorneys Pursuing Claims Against the Government in Missouri

Someone wearing a badge does not have a free pass to engage in reckless behavior. When a police officer chases a suspect and causes an accident, or a government employee harms someone due to negligence, the victim of the accident can claim compensation for financial losses and suffering.

There are strict statutes of limitations in both Missouri and Illinois in cases involving governmental negligence. If you have been injured by a negligent government employee, you need to take action as soon as possible to protect your right to claim compensation.
