Our government is supposed to work in the interest of its people but there are times when they are negligent and cause harm to the people they serve. When this occurs, government agencies need to be held accountable so that it does not happen again.
When Does Government Negligence Occur?
In Washington State, where we practice law, government liability causes serious injury and even death. Whether it is a dangerously designed or not properly maintained roadway, a reckless police officer, a poorly designed fire station, failure to properly train a government employee, a collision caused by a government vehicle, or unsafe playground equipment resulting in serious injury to a child, the public needs protection.
At Bishop Legal, we believe government accountability is vital for a democracy. By exposing wrongdoing and creating consequences because of it, the government better serves its citizens. Victims have a right to justice and obtain financial recovery when they sustain serious injures as a result of government negligence.
Taking on government agencies, municipal groups, police, port authorities, and public utilities is no easy task. Our law firm relishes a challenge where we can improve the situation of a seriously injured accident victim.
We do not back down from government entities when our clients have been harmed and the law is on their side. We have taken cases all the way to the Washington State Supreme Court to fight for our clients’ rights.
Based on recent episodes, it is clear the public needs protection. For example, a Seattle Police Officer recently tackled the wrong suspect into a wall and caused the innocent victim to go into a coma and suffer serious head injuries. In another case, a Seattle Police Officer shot and killed Native American wood carver John T. Williams.
