What does a civil rights violation look like?

There are many forms of civil rights violations, but some of the most common today involve mistreatment from law enforcement and corrections officers.

This can include things like excessive force, wrongful arrest and false imprisonment. Excessive force is any force that is greater than what is necessary to arrest or subdue a suspect.

Wrongful arrest occurs when an individual is arrested without probable cause or without a warrant. False imprisonment occurs when an individual is confined against their will without due process of law.

If you have been the victim of a civil rights violation, it is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Authorities are notorious for closing ranks and downplaying their actions, and they will move quickly to cover their tracks.

The sooner you contact an attorney, the better your chances of building a strong case and achieving a favorable outcome.

How are civil rights claims handled?

Civil rights claims like excessive force and police misconduct are typically handled under Section 1983 of the US Code.

This law allows individuals to sue government officials, including police officers, for violating their constitutional rights. In order to succeed on a Section 1983 claim and receive compensation, you will need to show that the officer acted willfully and without justification.

You will also need to show that you suffered some form of damages as a result of the officer’s actions. These can include things like physical injuries, emotional trauma and lost wages.

A lawyer can review your case with you and determine the best approach.
