WV MUNICIPAL LIABILITY: WV'S TORT CLAIMS ACT AND MUNICIPAL IMMUNITY LAWS

Municipalities in West Virginia (WV) face a unique set of challenges when it comes to defending potential lawsuits. After all, the costs related to litigation and possible liability can hurt the financial well-being of even the largest city, making WV municipal liability insurance a necessity. However, due to the inherent risks shouldered by WV cities--and the resulting inability to procure affordable liability insurance due to these risks--state lawmakers created the Governmental Tort Claims and Insurance Reform Act.
