THE DEL HOVDEN TEAM – YOUR Long Beach, Downey, Beverly Hills and Irvine LAWYERSDel Hovden — Fighting to protect you from Government Liability Litigation

We have all heard the old saying, “You can’t beat City Hall.”

Don’t Believe It!
Municipal liability litigation involves cases and claims against a state, city, town, or county. There are numerous types of municipal liability cases. Increasingly, these suits against cities are won handily.

With increasing numbers of dangerous situations in our cities and counties and ignored safety precautions, municipal litigation cases are becoming more and more common. Our lives involve interaction and contact with various government agencies or entities each and every day. These agencies build and maintain our roads, create parks for our children, and provide facilities in which our kids can grow and learn. However, various breakdowns in these systems can cause harm, and when they harm you or a loved one, you may have a valid municipal liability case.

Success is our Practice

Municipal liability law requires a unique set of skills; not all civil attorneys are adept at handling these cases. Del Hovden is an expert with over 30 years of specializing in this type of law. Del can help your family if you have been harmed by a city, county, town, or state-related accident.

Car accident claims fall under municipal liability cases, and the experienced vehicle accident team has handled hundreds of car accident cases that resulted in personal injuries and death. In municipal liability vehicle accident cases, road construction sites that are not clearly marked, faulty roadside barriers, and other dangerous road hazards may cause accidents resulting in serious personal injury or death.

If you have been involved in a vehicle accident, and the town or city in which you live exhibited negligence by not providing a safe environment, then you may have a municipal liability claim on your hands. Del Hovden, your experienced municipal liability attorney will listen to your case and advise of your legal rights and how to proceed.

Here is one very specific example of a vehicle accident-related municipal liability case: If your car were to collide into a protective barrier alongside a roadway and not protect you sufficiently, the municipality would be at fault, and the driver of the vehicle may be able to collect monetary compensation following this collision.

The Del Hovden Team has handled municipal liability cases such as:

  • Roadway design and maintenance failures
  • Defective/dangerous sidewalks
  • Dangers/hazards in public parks
  • Improper operation of city vehicles and their equipment
  • Railroad incidents
  • Subway incidents
  • Bus incidents

You should not have to fight for what you deserve, but sometimes it is necessary. If you find yourself in these circumstances, we will leave you more time to get your life back in order. Don’t let municipal litigation rob you of your legal rights.
