This workbook provides government employees background information related to tort liability and risk management. Past experience with lawsuits against government entities are summarized. The reasons for the lawsuits and results are analyzed. The objective is to provide an understanding of the basis for past claims so the number of future claims and awards can be reduced. This will result in the ultimate objective of reducing highway crashes.
Based on the results of the data analysis and the review of the background material, recommendations are made for consideration. Many of the recommendations deal with various types of documentation.
