Immunity Laws Shield Irresponsible Conduct

December 2021

Tort law generally allows a compensation for an injury by holding the negligent party responsible for their conduct.  However, in certain situations the law provides immunity to the responsible party.  Immunity laws protect a responsible party from being fully accountable for their conduct.  Although immunity laws can be broad in scope an experienced lawyer should examine the facts around your injury to see if the immunity law is actually applicable.

Despite the large number of immunity laws on the books, you should not automatically assume that the immunity law applies.  Take the time to talk with an experienced personal injury counsel.
