In my experience most government entities will take a hard line stance to most issues. In addition, depending on exactly what occurred in your case, if it is a slip and fall the initial burden lies with you the plaintiff. I would recommend contacting a local injury attorney that handles these types of cases to discuss the details. It's always better to know your available options and make a informed decision, rather than wait and have time run out.
In my experience, which is not vast compared to some other lawyers, they go to trial. I settled one after we picked a jury. All others were settled through pleadings, in the government's favor. They never got to go to trial. I have found the government to be an aggressive litigator/stubborn defendant.
You need a lawyer. First you have to give government special notice that you intend to sue it. This must be done befote you file suit and at least 6 months before the stsatute of limitation runs out. The statute of limitations is 3 years for this lawsuit and time negins to run from the date of the accident. Hire a lawyer and give her a copy of my answer. Kevin Griffin., in Ft Pierce. 772 489 7776
