An employee of a government agency has caused you harm

Certain situations permit you to sue the federal, city, or state government for injuries and damages caused by a government employee while acting in the scope of their work responsibilities.

Government Negligence Cases

When a government employee causes you harm—whether they are an employee of the post office, forest service, FBI, Veteran’s administration, or other agency—the steps needed to file a lawsuit can seem arduous and intimidating when taken on your own. Like most government proceedings, going through with your government negligence case involves a lot of paperwork and constricting timeframes.

When filing a lawsuit against a government entity, the process is very different from most other types of lawsuits.  The procedural hoops could easily cost you your case—which is why it is best to have a professional attorney represent you.
