Whether on the federal, state or municipal level, government agencies face considerable scrutiny when it comes to issues of liability and personal injury. The lawyers of Carr Allison have been actively involved in the defense of agencies and governments in government liability disputes. We have defended against a vast variety of claims from the simplest slip and fall or zoning dispute to constitutional claims involving claims of excessive force or suppression of First Amendment-protected speech.
An injury is not synonymous with liability and our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the law relating to immunity for certain governmental activities. Our lawyers have been on the approved panel of defense counsel for the Florida Association of Counties for over 15 years and have provided similar legal services to the largest insurer of governmental entities throughout Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. Some of the governmental entities and agencies that we have served include the following: State of Florida; Division of Workers Compensation; Leon County, Florida; Bay County, Florida; Florida Public Service Commission; Florida Department of Corrections; and various school districts and counties throughout Mississippi.
