Governmental Liability

    Yoka & Smith has extensive experience providing strategic consultation and defending cities, counties, other public entities on a wide range of legal matters, including premises liability, wrongful death and catastrophic personal injury, automobile accidents, contract and indemnity claims, dangerous conditions and construction-related claims.

    We have extensive knowledge of and experience in handling insurance and indemnity issues in order to quickly identify and protect governmental entities from loss or harm, and are well-versed in the various immunities granted to public entities to insulate them from liability. We understand the fiscal constraints facing public entities and aggressively work to mitigate costs and resolve issues pre-litigation whenever possible.

    We have successfully litigated claims under the Federal Torts Claims Act, the California Torts Claim Act, as  well as claims related to the government contractor doctrine and sovereign immunity.
