One of a public entity’s largest risk exposures is from personal injury/tort claims. Sanders & Parks has successfully represented public entities for decades in all stages of personal injury/tort litigation. From bus accidents to prison/correction-officer liability claims, Sanders & Parks has developed a reputation for efficient and effective representation of public entities. Sanders & Parks is well-versed in the unique issues that face public entities involved in personal injury/tort litigation. Such claims often involve the intersection of legal, political, and public relations issues. Sanders & Parks helps public entities navigate these issues in bringing personal injury/tort claims to a successful resolution through motion practice, favorable settlement, or trial.
The firm has successfully litigated claims involving simple negligence, complex standard of care cases, and cases involving public entity immunity and notice of claim defenses. Sanders & Parks knows there is no single blueprint for successfully litigating personal injury/tort claims against a public entity. Accordingly, the firm has developed a keen ability to deploy litigation and pre-litigation strategies crafted to respond to the unique issues of each case. Public entities have also retained Sanders & Parks in non-litigation matters to consult regarding proactive strategies to decrease risk and avoid personal injury/tort litigation.
