REPRESENTING PUBLIC ENTITIES
The New Jersey Tort Claims Act (the TCA) limits the liability of public entities and governmental bodies for injuries caused to individuals on public property as a result of a dangerous condition of property or because of the negligent actions of public employees. There are limited circumstances where the state, a county, city, town or other public entity may be sued and held responsible for damages. Public entities can mistakenly be viewed as deep pockets by plaintiffs and their lawyers. In the present budget–capped reality you must retain experienced, results-oriented, cost conscious, and aggressive legal counsel to protect your rights. The attorneys at CraigAnninBaxter Law can help.
