State Tort Claims (Lawsuits Against A Government Agency)
Asserting Your Rights To Compensation Under North Carolina Law
In most personal injury cases, you will have to litigate against an insurance company to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. If you or a loved one was harmed by a government agency, you face a different set of rules.
There are many cases where you might have to sue a state agency, the county, the school district or a local municipality, such as:
- An auto collision or pedestrian accident involving a state agency vehicle
- School bus accidents or other public transportation accidents
- Car accidents caused by defectively designed or poorly maintained roads
- Slip-and-fall accidents in state-owned buildings

Instead of a jury trial, your case will be heard by a deputy commissioner of the North Carolina Industrial Commission. At Britton Law, our understanding of these and other differences in pursuing these claims gives our clients the best chance in their case.
