Recovering after suffering an injury

If you are injured in an incident involving where your civil rights may have been violated, there is the potential to collect damages for your suffering, and to hold those responsible accountable for their actions. Some basic examples of common civil rights violations that could lead to injury include, but are not limited to:

  • Hate Crimes
  • Inappropriate law enforcement behavior, such as excessive force, brutality, abuses of power, and unjustified police shootings
  • Sexual assault

If you are proven to have been injured due to another party’s fault, in violation of your civil rights, you have a right to collect compensation. After proving that your injuries would not have occurred if not for the actions of the other party, you can seek economic damages, non-economic damages, and, in certain cases, punitive damages.

Economic Damages 

Economic damages is money that would reimburse you for expenses such as medical bills, property damage, lost wages due to an inability to work, rehabilitation, physical therapy, medical equipment costs, medicine costs, and other related expenses.

Non-Economic Damages 

These damages are money that can be collected to cover things such as pain and suffering, inconvenience, disfigurement, physical impairment, loss of companionship, humiliation, reputation injury, and mental anguish. 

Punitive Damages 

Money awarded to the injured party by the at-fault-party as punishment for their particularly egregious or deplorable misconduct or mistreatment of the victim. Punitive damages may hold one or more parties responsible for the civil rights violation that also resulted in an injury.
