Types of Tort Claims

- Car accidents
- Bus accidents
- Medical negligence
- Sports injuries at a school

When a government entity fails to fulfil a legal duty or obligation, the same government may be held accountable for all injuries and losses caused due to their negligence.
If we are not able to receive a fair compensation amount for your claim involving one of these fields, we will take your case to trial to receive fair compensation.
