Are There Caps in Damages Against the State Government?

Submitted By: David (Los Angeles, CA)

I’m a personal injury attorney in California. I was wondering if there are any caps in damages in government Tort claims. I was looking at the website which state that there are no caps in personal injury cases.

Does that extend to Government Tort claims? Thanks.

  1. Counselor:

    California Governmental Tort Liability for local, county and state governments allows individuals to certain claims against state, county and local government entities. In the allowable claims the monetary awards have no caps as they do in some states. Annually, California pays approximately $123 million in tort claims.
