Indianapolis Municipal Negligence Attorneys
The institutions of local, city, state, and federal government are responsible for maintaining much of the world around us—often in ways we do not consider. They are charged with maintaining our schools, sidewalks, buildings, and roadways, among other things.
In many cases, these government institutions responsibly and properly ensure our safety by effectively managing these areas of our lives. However, when government officials behave in a negligent manner and fail to do the work entrusted to them, the consequences to individuals can be devastating.
The municipal negligence attorneys at Hankey Marks & Crider are here to represent you if you are the unlucky victim of these government failures.
