Sovereign immunity is an Americanized concept that came from an English doctrine, which stated, "The King can do no wrong." This concept allows the government to enjoy a measure of immunity from lawsuits related to its negligence.
Florida Statutes, Section 768.28, waives sovereign immunity in tort cases. This means that the government allows individuals to file a lawsuit against the state or its agencies and recover money damages for loss of property, personal injury, or death.
However, there are specific procedural requirements and limitations established by laws that an experienced sovereign immunity law firm, like Littky, Smith, Phipps & Casas, P.A. will help you navigate when filing a lawsuit against a governmental official or entity.
