What Are Your Civil Rights?

The civil rights granted by the United States Constitution come primarily from the following:

  • The Fourth Amendment

Protects you against illegal searches and seizures and police brutality. We have been successful in handling these civil rights cases, as well as unlawful arrest and wrongful conviction cases, which often involve violations of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment’s “due process of law” clauses.

  • The First Amendment

Guarantees freedom of speech and provides protection against retaliation. This is especially applicable to whistleblower cases—also known as a qui tam lawsuit.

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964

Prohibits federal and state governments and employers from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. This is often referenced in employment law cases.

10 Types of Police Brutality and Misconduct Lawyers

Police officers are subject to legal consequences, just like everyone else. When their authority leads to serious injuries, or worse, death, you and your family could be eligible for financial compensation.

Here are some examples of ways police officers may abuse their authority:

  1. Excessive force
  2. Sexual assault
  3. Taser injuries
  4. Racial profiling
  5. Wrongful shootings
  6. Illegal search and seizure
  7. Forced confessions
  8. False imprisonment
  9. Prison abuse
  10. subtle deception

It is also illegal for police officers to deny basic constitutional rights, such as the right to remain silent; the right to refuse consent to a search of yourself, your car, or your home; the right to leave if you are not under arrest; and the right to an attorney.
