If you’ve been injured in an accident and you believe it was due to someone else’s negligence, the logical thing to do is file a personal injury claim to recoup your losses. In most cases, filing a claim is relatively straightforward, but what if a government agency or government employee injured you?
It’s possible to sue a government agency in Michigan, but it’s not easy. Calling a personal injury lawyer with David Christensen Law to discuss your options is a good first step.
The government, which includes city, county, and state employees, is protected by something called sovereign immunity, which is outlined in the Governmental Tort Liability Act. Basically, the act protects the state government from being sued while performing government functions.
There are some exceptions to this rule, however.

We are well-versed in personal injury law, including the law as it pertains to negligent government agencies and employees.
