Have your individual freedoms or rights been violated?
Our country was founded on the basis that all “men are created equal and that they are endowed with certain unalienable rights such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
An individual’s civil rights are a protected freedom under law. These rights are enforceable under law and if violated may be actionable for injury.
Violation or discrimination of civil rights of an individual occurs when an individual is dealt with inappropriately because of their membership in a particular group or class. These groups can be either a person’s gender, race, religion, age, disability, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. There are many areas where a person’s civil rights might be impacted, such as housing, arrests, employment, or other civil matters.
If you believe you have suffered from a violation of your civil rights, it is best to contact an attorney. We can help you evaluate the circumstances of your case and best options to ensure a positive outcome.
