Civil Rights lawyers specialize in protecting your rights that are guaranteed under the United States Constitution. These rights include: protecting you from discrimination because of the color of your skin, sex, religion, age, disability and nationality. These constitutional rights apply to employment and housing interference with your freedom. If your rights have been violated you should consult a civil rights lawyer.
Some Civil Rights lawyers specialize in cases involving False Arrest, Police Misconduct and the use of Excessive Force against you by the Police. If these rights were violated, you may be entitled to money damages. These damages can flow from being imprisoned, physical injuries, a lost job or loss of a job opportunity. Victims may recover money damages from the city, town or municipality that employed the officers, and also, sometimes from the officers themselves.
