Governmental Liability Defense
Quintairos, Prieto, Wood, & Boyer’s governmental liability defense team represents municipalities, law enforcement agencies, law enforcement officers, school districts, administrators, teachers, and governmental agencies at the state, federal and local level. Our representation encompasses practically every aspect of governmental liability involving governmental entities and employees. These cases are defended before different forums such as State, Federal and Appellate Courts, as well as administrative agencies.
Our attorneys have successfully defended hundreds of governmental liability cases including:
- Civil rights (42 U.S.C. § 1983)
- Police and law enforcement agencies
- Prisons, jails, holding facilities and detention centers claims
- “Hot Pursuit” traffic accidents
- Wrongful death
- Employment related liability
- First, Fourth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments
- School based liability
- County and Municipal tort claims
Governmental liability cases are unique because State and Federal laws recognize certain levels of immunity which are often evolving as courts continue to apply the law to new fact patterns. Our attorneys are familiar with these issues and stay current on changes in the law. They have earned a reputation among government officials, self-insureds and insurance professionals for delivering first-rate, cost-effective and practical legal representation ranging from high-profile cases to the more typical, yet equally important, claim. No matter how large or small the case, we look forward to working with you and invite you to learn more about us.
