Injured On Government-Owned Property? You Have Rights

When accidents happen on government-owned property, the situation can feel overwhelming. At the Law Offices of Eric Hershler, we bring over 35 years of experience to the table, along with a compassionate approach that focuses on getting you the support and compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured on public property, such as a DMV office or other government-operated facilities, you need a legal advocate who understands the unique challenges of governmental premises liability. We’re here to provide the guidance and advocacy you need during this difficult time.

Holding Government Entities Responsible For Your Injuries

Just like private property owners, the government and public entities owe a duty of care to visitors to maintain safe premises, fix hazards or provide adequate warnings to them. To succeed in a claim against a government entity, you must prove the existence of a dangerous condition, that the condition caused your injury, that the risk of your injury was a foreseeable consequence of the dangerous condition and that the government had constructive and actual notice of the condition.

While public properties are meant to be safe for visitors, accidents can still occur due to various reasons, including:

  • Slip-and-fall incidents caused by wet or uneven flooring
  • Injuries from falling objects or equipment
  • Accidents due to poor lighting or inadequate security measures
  • Harm from broken or malfunctioning amenities

Filing a premises liability claim against a government entity in California involves specific steps and deadlines that differ from other personal injury claims against private property owners. Our team is prepared to help you understand and navigate this process, ensuring your rights are protected and helping you fight for the compensation you deserve.
