If your civil rights have been violated and you have become the victim of police misconduct, you are entitled to seek legal representation from a Long Beach Police misconduct attorney. Whether your circumstances involve a wrongful arrest, police brutality, or unauthorized shootings, it’s important you learn about your constitutional rights and the police is held accountable for their actions.
Your civil rights
The United States Constitution grants civil rights primarily under the First and Fourth Amendment as well as The Civil Rights Act of 1964:
- The First Amendment protects individuals against police brutality and illegal searches.
- The fourth amendment allows you freedom speech and protects you against retaliation.
- The Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects individuals who have been discriminated against based on their race, color, creed, gender or national origin.
Handling your claim
At JML Law our Long Beach police misconduct attorneys have many years of experience representing victims injured by the police in California. We believe that officers who negligently shoot someone can cause serious injuries and hardship to the victims and their families. When people find themselves involved in this type of situation, our attorneys will aggressively pursue personal injury compensation or wrongful death compensation in cases when the victim dies.
Bringing a lawsuit against the police can be challenging for an attorney without adequate experience in police misconduct cases. Someone pursuing a police misconduct claim will have to face a number of obstacles and defenses that protect the police such as authorized immunity where the judge may rule that the police conduct was lawful. These cases involve complicated laws and procedural rules that only an experienced Long Beach Police misconduct attorney will be able to handle.
