Government and Mass Transit Liability
Vandeveer Garzia has a long history of
representing governmental entities and mass transit operators.
Attorneys from the firm have represented counties and cities in all
aspects of litigation, including police claims, employment claims,
environmental and land use claims as well as claims arising out of
contractual and statutory issues. Our attorneys are well-versed
in Governmental Immunity and the notice/prejudice arguments that arise
under those statutes.
Vandeveer Garzia attorneys have been city
prosecutors for civil infraction and misdemeanor actions, and have long
acted as primary panel counsel for a number of communities.
Mass Transit entities represent a particular
specialty for the firm’s attorneys. Vandeveer Garzia
recognizes that mass-transit vehicles represent both vehicle and
premises claims and that even minor variations in the facts of
particular incidents can turn into major victories for our
clients. As governmental agencies themselves, in many cases, mass
transit authorities are well-served by a relationship with our firm.
