It should come to no surprise to you if you have trouble finding an attorney to file suit on your behalf against a governmental entity.

Under our state’s Tort Claims Act, Indiana’s comparative fault law is inapplicable to lawsuits brought against governmental entities. Instead, contributory negligence acts as a complete bar to any recovery of damages. If a jury determines that the injured party is just 1% at fault, the injured party will not receive any damages even though the wrongdoer may have been 99% at fault.
