What should I do if my civil rights have been violated?
You have a fundamental right as a citizen of the United States to have your civil rights and liberties upheld in all aspects of your life. However, if your civil rights have been violated, you need to know what options are available to you.
Knowing If You Have A Civil Rights Violation
The first step to take when you suspect you have a civil rights violation is to determine if the violation was actually against a protected right. Sometimes, you may feel as though your rights have been violated, but it doesn’t mean it was actually the case. Only certain rights are protected under civil rights and anti-discrimination laws.
But, if a civil right was violated, you have a number of options available to you including resolving the matter through negotiations, filing a claim with the government, and filing a private lawsuit in civil court.
At The Smith Law Firm, we can guide you through the civil litigation process and ensure your civil rights are protected and accounted for.
