Legendary NYC Civil Rights Attorney
Understanding Civil Rights Violations
Police officers, sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement personnel are paid with our tax dollars “to serve and protect” us.
Unfortunately, citizens all too often are injured by unreasonable use of force and unnecessary violence by the very people who are supposed to be protecting them.
The Numerous Types Of Civil Rights Violations
A person’s civil rights can be violated in many ways, including:
- Police brutality
- False arrest
- Malicious prosecution
- Cruel and unusual punishment
- Failing to accommodate a disability
- Profiling suspects based on racism or sexism
- Infringement of free speech
- Unreasonable use of force by police
- Unjustified use of Tasers or stun guns
- Abuse of prisoners or inmates
- Police shootings of unarmed individuals
- Rape or sexual abuse of persons in custody
No one should have to be mistreated by police officers, prison workers or other government employees.
Pursuing Compensation, Accountability For Official Misconduct
If you have been injured by the police or subjected to physical abuse by guards or correctional officers while in jail or prison, you may have a claim for violation of your civil rights to pursue compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced.
A civil rights lawsuit can also hold the guilty party accountable for misconduct, discouraging that person from ever doing such a thing to someone else.
