Welcome to Fielding Law, where we specialize in handling public entity claims with expertise and compassion. Our team is dedicated to providing personalized legal solutions for individuals who have suffered injuries due to public entity negligence.

What is a Public Entity?

A public entity refers to any government agency or organization responsible for providing public services and maintaining public property. These entities can include city governments, public schools, transportation departments, and more. When accidents occur on public property or due to the actions of public employees, individuals may have grounds for a public entity claim.

Types of Public Entity Claims

  • Slip and fall accidents on public sidewalks maintained by a city or municipality.
  • Injuries resulting from negligent maintenance of public parks or recreational facilities.
  • Accidents involving public transportation, such as bus or train collisions.
  • Negligent security leading to assaults or injuries on public property.
  • Claims against government agencies for dangerous road conditions causing car accidents.
  • Injuries caused by defective equipment or infrastructure on public property, such as broken playground equipment.
  • Accidents in government buildings due to hazards like slippery floors or inadequate lighting.
  • Claims against public schools for injuries resulting from negligence during school-sponsored activities or events.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
