A: Not exactly sure the question you're asking here, but please clarify either by a response here or directly to me.

The tort claim act covers civil damages covered by a state or local government entity (there is also a separate federal tort claims act)

These acts have some rather strict notice requirements, the state and local ones as short as 180 days, and have very specific ways in which to provide such notice.

Regardless, most lawyers who handle these cases do so on a contingency basis and offer free consultations. Such an attorney would be in the best position to ask the right questions, get more details and give a more precise and specific answer to your situation.
