CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
In some unfortunate situations, citizens are the victims of police brutality, neglect or abuse while confined in a State institution or suffer some other harm at the hands of a State or Federal employee.
REMEDIES FOR CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
Fortunately, the law provides a remedy for persons who suffer such abuse. The law in this area is extremely technical and the government often enjoys immunity from suits. However, if the involved claims are properly drafted and supported by facts, immunity may be unavailable to the government and you may be entitled to damages for the injury suffered. Examples of such situations may involve failure to render proper medical care while confined, allowing a child to be assaulted while in a state care facility, and police brutality, among other examples.
