When filing a claim against a government agency such as a public transportation district, the statute of limitations is generally significantly shorter than it would be when filing a civil claim against a private person or company. For this reason, acting as quickly as possible to protect your rights is vital. While it is unusual for a government agency to be found responsible for injuring a person, when this does happen, you don’t want to lose your rights. No one should have to suffer financial hardship
on top of physical injury because of the negligent actions of a government agency or a government employee.
