You may have a complex and difficult personal injury case if a governmental agency has acted negligently and caused your injury. The Maine Tort Claims Act provides "governmental entities" and government employees immunity from personal injury lawsuits that seek recovery of damages. While the law protects governmental entities, Maine law does have some exceptions to immunity.
A governmental entity may be liable for bodily injury, property damage or death in some personal injury cases involving the following:
- Ownership, maintenance or use of vehicles, machinery and equipment
- Public buildings (for example, maintenance and construction of places such as courthouses and schools)
- Discharge of pollutants
- Road construction, street cleaning or repair
Keep in mind that every case is different. It's important to discuss the facts of your specific case with an experienced lawyer.
