Civil Rights and Constitutional Claims
Death in Jail. Police Shootings. School Shootings.
We depend on government institutions and employees to protect us – from law enforcement agents keeping our neighborhoods safe, to jail authorities ensuring proper healthcare for inmates, to protecting our children from school violence including bullying, hazing, and shootings. However, these government institutions are not perfect, and it is important to hold wrongdoers in government accountable in order to maintain our liberty and ensure high standards in our government institutions.
If you have been harmed during an encounter with law enforcement officers, corrections officers, or other government employees who are acting in their professional capacities; if you are injured in a government-run place such as a school or college, due to inadequate safety measures and procedures; if you are a government employee or citizen who has been discriminated against due to race, disability or gender; you may have a Constitutional Claim against the government.
Some common and compensable infringements on your constitutional rights include:
- Use of deadly or excessive force, or brutality by police officers
- Failure of jail or prisons to provide necessary medical care and treatment to inmates and detainees
- Unlawful arrest or search of your private or personal property without a valid warrant
- School bullying /harassment/ shootings
- Discrimination or harassment due to gender, race, disability, religion, age, or sexual orientation – including sexual harassment – in the workplace
We also represent workers who are discriminated against in the private sector -who have endured discrimination in the workplace due to gender, race, disability, religion, age, or sexual orientation – including sexual harassment.
If you have suffered any of the above, you may have grounds for a Civil Rights or Constitutional claim against the government entity who caused you harm, or the right to pursue civil litigation against your employer.
