MARIETTA CIVIL RIGHTS LAWYER

 

Violation of your civil rights can have a lasting negative impact on physical, emotional, and financial aspects of your life. Such an experience can leave a victim with many unanswered questions regarding their rights, as well as what legal action they can take to remedy their situation. If you have suffered damages at the hands of your employer, law enforcement, court officials, or government officials, then a Marietta civil rights attorney from Blevins & Hong, P.C. can help. Contact us at your earliest convenience to schedule an appointment for your free case evaluation so that you can speak directly with a lawyer who can answer all of your questions. In the meantime, read through the answers that we have provided below to some of the most common civil rights questions.

 

YOU HAVE QUESTIONS? WE HAVE ANSWERS!

 

What are civil rights?

Every U.S. citizen has certain rights according to the Constitution, the United States Code, and state laws that have evolved from them. These rights include protection against discrimination, abuse, and wrongful treatment by law enforcement, the court, and government officials, such as police brutality and abuse of power. Civil rights also provide protection against employer discrimination in the workplace.

 

What types of discrimination violate my civil rights?

Discrimination comes in many forms. Perhaps you have been discriminated against due to your race, beliefs, or country of origin. Racism seems to have decreased over the past few decades, but it still remains a problem. Other forms of discrimination include sex or sexual orientation, age, social standing, disability, or even your family situation. Employers, law enforcement, and court officials can all violate an individual's civil rights due to discrimination.

 

Who can file a civil rights claim?

Anyone whose rights have been violated by another person can file a claim for compensation. Perhaps you are the victim of police misconduct, such as excessive force, police brutality, or false arrest. You may have experienced discrimination and suffered wrongful treatment as a result. Whatever the case may be, a Marietta civil rights attorney from our firm can help you file a claim against the liable individual and present strong evidence to establish liability and recover your damages.

 

When can I file a civil rights claim?

As long as you have the ability to prove that another individual caused you to suffer due to a violation of your civil rights, you can file a claim for compensation. You must be sure to do so as soon as possible so that the evidence is easily discovered; otherwise, it becomes more and more difficult to establish the liability of the party responsible for violating your rights. If you have been injured physically, emotionally, and / or financially due to wrongful treatment by a law enforcement officer, court official, or government official, speak with a civil rights lawyer right away to find out whether you should file a claim.

 

What damages are covered through a civil rights claim?

When your civil rights are violated, you can suffer damages in a number of ways. First of all, you can suffer physical injury due to an assault or police brutality, which is a common result of excessive use of force. You can also suffer emotional damages due to discrimination, false arrest and imprisonment, and verbal abuse due to discrimination and other factors. Then there are financial damages to consider due to loss of income from wrongful termination or due to court fees, bail, and fines caused by malicious prosecution and false imprisonment. These are only some of the more common damages that can be covered through a civil rights claim.
