Responsibility of Local Government

Recently I read a blog post by a Dallas personal injury lawyer that got me thinking. How much responsibility does local government have to keep residents safe? If for example a known dangerous intersection needs a stop light and city council votes down the stop light and a child is killed by a car at that intersection, how much liability does the city bear?

I’ll be exploring this topic more soon. If anyone has any case¬†law to contribute to this topic, please let me know.

UPDATE: Currently getting comments from a lawyer at this firm:
