Government Claims + Litigation

In the age of big government, we are finding that more of our cases address governmental wrong-doing. While the deadlines for filing against government wrongdoers tend to be shorter and the filing process more complex, we have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of citizens and government workers who have been injured by governmental wrongdoing. No one benefits from corrupt governance. At Dicks & Workman Attorneys at Law, APC, we are proud to challenge our government to do better by calling dysfunctional governmental entities, agencies and agents out in court when they break the law. We have represented both ordinary civilians and government workers who have been injured by the following governmental wrong-doing:

  • Bane Act violations

  • Civil Rights and Constitutional violations

  • Coverup and conspiracy

  • Dangerous conditions on public property

  • Defective road and sidewalk design

  • Excessive force by a police officer

  • False arrest

  • Illegal blood draw

  • Illegal surveillance

  • Injuries caused during hot pursuit

  • Monell violations

  • Racial discrimination

  • Sexual and gender discrimination

  • Sexual assault by a police officer

  • Unlawful detention

  • Video voyeurism

  • Violation of LGBT Rights

  • Wrongful conviction

Personal Injury

No one wants to be a victim, but sometimes even the most self-sufficient and careful individuals get injured through no fault of their own. When this happens, we help injured clients try to get back on their feet by seeking a fair monetary settlement or jury verdict on their behalf to aid with past and future medical bills, past and future earning loss, life care planning, pain management and suffering. Furthermore, injuries do not have to be physical to be compensable. Recently, we are seeing more clients who have been injured from high-tech abuses like on-line bullying, on-line posting of private images, video voyeurism, illegal surveillance, on-line stalking, and other forms of invasion of privacy and damage to reputation.
