Los Angeles Government Liability Attorneys
Committed to Pursuing Justice for Victims of Government Negligence
Challenging the government, police, municipal groups and public utilities is a daunting task. But there are times when demanding government accountability is critical to obtaining justice. When a dangerously designed road leads to a young mother’s death or a law-abiding surgeon loses the use of his hands after being beaten by a police officer, it is essential to expose wrongdoing and hold the government accountable.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, we have a strong track record of success obtaining financial recovery for victims of police, local and state government negligence. Our Los Angeles government liability lawyers have tried cases against the cities and police departments of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Torrance, Burbank and Long Beach, as well as the California Department of Motor Vehicles, CalTrans, and the State of California.

Government Liability Claims We Can Handle
Under the Federal Torts Claims Act (FTCA), people who have suffered injuries due to the negligent or wrongful action of U.S. government employees may be entitled to file a lawsuit for compensation. In 2003, our attorneys at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP provided this form of representation to the victims of the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market tragedy – an event where injuries and deaths could have been prevented if the City of Santa Monica had simply followed common safety practices. This is just one example of how our firm has fought to secure fair recovery for victims of government negligence.
Here are a few other examples of cases we’ve handled in the past:
- Poorly designed roadways. Includes claims for dangerous intersections, defective crosswalks, and failure to install guard rails and bollards.
- Government premises liability. Includes slip-and-fall accidents in government building, or from other accidents on government property.
- Negligent supervision. Includes holding school districts, parks, and recreational programs accountable for injuries resulting from negligent supervision of children.
- Motor vehicle accidents. Includes claims against government employers accountable for car and truck accidents.
When you work with our firm, our investigative team will act quickly to preserve your government liability claim. We cut through the bureaucratic process to obtain accident histories. Our investigative experts serve as important resources for cases involving defective parts and dangerous roadway or intersection design. We persuade the juries who hear these technically challenging cases by often presenting incident reenactments of failures of signal light timing, traffic count, pedestrian crossings and signal phasing.
Seeking Justice for Police Civil Rights Violations
In addition to the government liability cases listed above, we have extensive experience representing victims of police corruption, cover-ups and police brutality – and seeking justice when their civil rights were violated. To that end, we have handled cases involving excessive use of force and unjustified shootings. We have also represented the victims of car accidents caused by police pursuits that endangered others on the road.
