A Dedicated Tampa Attorney For Injury Claims Against Government Entities


What are your legal options if you were seriously injured by an overzealous police officer or due to dangerous, defective conditions on government-owned property? Is a lawsuit against a Florida municipality, county or other government agency even worth considering?

The direct answer to that second question is yes. Government entities can be held financially liable for negligence and acts of recklessness that injure people or cause wrongful death. However, rigor in upfront case evaluation is absolutely critical when considering such an action.

Get Clear Guidance On Your Real, Practical Legal Options

Many solid personal injury lawyers steer clear of lawsuits against the government, but Tim Prugh is a Florida Bar Board-Certified Trial Specialist in Tampa who has met such cases’ notorious challenges head-on and won favorable outcomes for our clients. He is adept at:

  • Analyzing whether the extent of your injuries and circumstances of your accident justify legal action — and determining what specific entity (or entities) should be held accountable
  • Assessing police brutality claims and other allegations of injury-causing misconduct committed by public-sector employees, including the reckless operation of a police, fire or rescue vehicle that led to a devastating auto accident
  • Accounting for and fulfilling special requirements, including timely notice-of-claim filings within tight deadlines, damage caps and other stipulations

Tim Prugh’s track record in more than 150 trials in state and federal courts speaks to his long-standing willingness to take on powerful, influential opponents. When you turn to Prugh & Associates, P.A., you can count on straight, reliable answers to your questions and genuine empathy for your suffering.
