Municipal Tort Liability
When a personal injury occurs due to the fault of a municipality such as a city, park district, township or county, you must have an experienced attorney on your side. Municipal entities enjoy immunities from most lawsuits in Illinois. Most of those immunities are derived from the Illinois Tort Immunity Act. In other words, if you try to sue a municipality in Illinois for an injury it caused, it is very likely that it will be dismissed by the courts, because of the various protections the municipalities have been granted by our state legislature.
There are exceptions to these immunities. The experienced Chicago municipal tort liability attorneys at Friedman & Bonebrake, P.C., can advise you as to whether you have a valid claim for your injuries when a municipal entity is involved.
Our lawyers have recovered settlements or verdicts that add up to hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars. We also represent people with smaller claims. The types of claims we have filed against municipal entities include automobile accidents involving municipal vehicles, slip-and-fall accident cases and civil rights claims.Free Consultation: Municipal Tort Liability Law Firm In Chicago
