3 Times You Need a Lawyer’s Help
In today’s society, we are seeing many more cases than ever before on police brutality. It is unfortunate, but sometimes those in positions of power do not uphold their oath for service, and may stray from the right path. In these cases, when something goes wrong, you are entitled to find justice for yourself or your loved one. Attorneys can help you with any legal issues you may have. Read on for a few times you should seek them out for legal advice.
Civil Rights Violations
In the United States, we have certain freedoms and liberties that should always be upheld, unless there is some kind of extreme case at hand. Since not many things would be considered an “extreme case” it is relatively safe to assume that your rights should always be upheld. If you think that someone has violated your rights, speak with an attorney to see what your options are. There may be more than you realize.
This type of case is something we are seeing more and more of in today’s media. Often sensationalized, it doesn’t take away from the very real problems that are happening. They key here is to do as an officer says while on the scene, and then if something goes awry, you are completely free to take that officer to court for their wrongdoings.
Jail and Prison Neglect/Abuse
The sad fact is that many prison guards abuse their position, using it to physically and emotionally abuse the inmates they are in charge of. Regardless of the reason someone ends up in jail, there are very few reasons they should ever lay a hand on an inmate in their charge. Speak to an attorney if you believe they have used excessive force or overstepped their bounds.
As many as 95% to 96% of injury cases are settled pretrial, while 4% or 5% end up going to trial. Police misconduct and any other types of abuse by those in power should not be tolerated. Will you be seeking out attorneys for any of these reasons? Do you have a reason not mentioned here? We would love to hear your thoughts and comments about your experience!
