Texas Tort Claim Act Legal Actions

What is the Texas Tort Claims Act?

Enacted in 1969, the Texas Tort Claims Act waives sovereign immunity for governmental entities responsible for injuries caused during an act of governmental function. Prior to this act, government entities were immune to responsibility, which meant that individuals injured by government employees or other officers in an official capacity could not seek compensation for the damages they had suffered.

While this type of immunity was originally thought to protect the government from wasted time, resources and overspending on defense in litigation cases, it left injury victims with nowhere to go to pursue the justice they deserved. Today, the Texas Tort Claims Act makes government entities liable for a variety of acts, including property damage, personal injury or wrongful death. Liability is limited to a maximum of $250,000 in monetary damages for each person, $500,000 for individual instances of bodily injury or death, and $100,000 for each individual case of destruction of property.

How to Handle a Texas Tort Claim Act Case

Although the Texas Tort Claim Act gives individuals the right to pursue litigation against government entities that they did not previously have, this does not mean that the process is by any means easy. In fact, there are quite a few restrictions in the act, such as those that limit the amount of compensation a government entity is liable to pay. Additionally, the act may not contain protections for certain groups like city volunteers and it does establish immunity for some types of government workers or officials.

The best way to handle a Texas Tort Claim Act case is to enlist the services of a Dallas civil law attorney who has experience delivering successful results.
