civil rights violationsAll American citizens are entitled to inherent civil rights.

When these civil rights are violated, it is a criminal offense and the victim needs to seek the services of a licensed and experienced lawyer.

If someone has been threatened with force, abuse, or neglect or encountered property damage in an attempt to instill fear; their civil rights have been violated.

Some examples of civil rights violations are hate crimes that are based upon race, sexual orientation, religious preference, and gender, exploitation of women or migrant workers, and abuse or mistreatment from public or government officials.

If you believe that your civil rights have been violated you should file a police report, detailing the nature of the incident. If you aren’t sure what additional steps you should take, schedule a free evaluation or consultation with a lawyer. If you need to contact another agency, the lawyer can point you in the right direction and assist you with your needs.

Because some civil rights cases involve threats or serious damage, you may find that a personal injury lawyer who has a proven history with civil rights violations will best represent you.
