Accidents Involving A Government Vehicle

Many aspects of a personal injury case after a crash involving a government vehicle will be similar or identical to aspects of a personal injury case after an accident between private vehicles. However, the processes involving in pursuing compensation after a car or truck accident may vary when one of the vehicles was a government vehicle such as a:

  • Police car
  • Fire truck
  • Ambulance (if government owned)
  • Garbage truck (if owned by a municipality)
  • Street cleaning truck (if government owned)
  • Utility truck (if government owned)
  • Military vehicle
  • Car or truck owned and operated by any city, county, state or federal government agency, such as municipal parks and recreation department or the U.S. Border Patrol.

For example, there may be strict time limits for filing injury claims or lawsuits when one of the cars or trucks was government-owned. There may be issues of government immunity. On the other hand, there may be special opportunities, such as the opportunity to file a claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act (“FTCA”) if the vehicle is federally owned.
