Emergency Service Organizations

The firm represents volunteer fire departments, emergency medical services organizations, rescue squads, hospital districts and other governmental, quasi-governmental, and non-profit organizations in all types of civil litigation, including wrongful death, injury, health care liability, property damage, civil rights, auto and employment disputes.

We have years of experience working at the administrative, trial and appellate levels with the state and federal laws governing these types of claims, including the Texas Tort Claims Act, 42 U.S.C. 1983, Title VII, the ADEA, the ADA, and Chapter 74 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code (Health Care Liability Claims).

The governmental immunities and damage caps afforded these entities and their employees and volunteers under differing fact circumstances are often complex, but our expertise and knowledge of these entities and how they operate, as well as the applicable statutory schemes and evolving case law in the area, often lead to an early dismissal of claims on behalf of our clients.
