Title:Georgia Sovereign Immunity Law
Category:Blogs and Diaries: Law
Description:In Georgia, the ability to bring a lawsuit against a government office or one of its employees is limited, and some instances totally prohibited because of the Georgia Sovereign Immunity Law. This is known as “immunity.” Immunity comes in distinct forms with varying degrees of protection. Governmental immunity is independent and distinct from that of its employees. Governmental immunity is known as sovereign immunity; whereas employee immunity is known as qualified or official (i.e., government officials) immunity. It is crucial to know that the burden of proving a waiver of immunity in any particular case rests with the person seeking damages against the state office or employee—as was determined by the landmark case Cosby v. Lewis, 308 Ga. App. 668 (2011). In short, personal injury and accident lawsuits against the government are greatly complex, involving much more nuanced areas of law. For this reason, you should consult with an accomplished Georgia injury attorney at Scholle Law right away if you are seeking a claim against a potentially immune government employee or entity.
