Governmental Liability

At the Law Office of Andrew C. Clarke, we treat each case as the unique legal matter it is and we have the skills and experience necessary to aggressively pursue our client’s rights.

Historically, governments and governmental entities were immune from the financial and legal burdens of litigation. Without the government’s consent, citizens injured due to government wrongdoing were left without options for recovery. However, Tennessee enacted legislation allowing suits against the government under specific circumstances including:

  • Injuries caused by car crashes as the result of negligence on the part of a government employee acting within the scope of their governmental duty
  • Injuries caused by unsafe walkways and motorways such as streets, sidewalks, or highways owned and controlled by the government
  • Injuries caused by the dangerous condition of government owned and operated buildings and structures.
  • Injuries caused from negligent high-speed pursuits

In addition, Mr. Clarke believes in open government and has handled numerous claims against governmental entities for public access to governmental records and meetings.
