Tort Claims Against Government Entities Under Federal and State Law

Any motorist that has been involved in a vehicular accident with a government vehicle generally has 6 months or 180 days from the date of accident to file a claim. Taking legal action against a public entity typicailly requires an expert with extensive knowledge of the California Tort Claims Act and the Federal Tort Claims Act. For this reason, it is best to consult with an experienced attorney.
