What Are Civil Rights?

The term “civil rights” describes a set of rights that were created to protect individuals and specific groups from unfair treatment. Civil rights attorneys focus on human rights and fighting for the rights of groups or individuals who have experienced a violation of their freedoms.

Our civil rights attorneys focus on violations stemming from police and jailer misconduct. Every individual has the right to equal treatment and these civil rights can be violated in the following ways:
  • Excessive force
  • Unnecessary use of force
  • Unlawful arrest or detainment
  • Unlawful search and seizure
  • Wrongful confessions
  • Falsified evidence
  • Dangerous and/or unnecessary vehicle chases
  • Prison abuse
  • Misuse of authority (i.e. a police officer engages in sexual assault)
  • Wrongful police shootings
  • Wrongful death caused by a law enforcement official
  • Failure to protect inmates
