Pursuing Justice for Victims of Civil Rights Violations in Illinois and Throughout the Country

The U.S. Constitution guarantees the civil rights of all Americans. In addition, numerous federal and state statutes have been put in place to reaffirm those rights. Though the law is clear on this issue, there are still many individuals, businesses, and government officials who discriminate against individuals on the basis of a protected class. When this occurs, it is important to speak with an experienced civil rights violations attorney, so you understand your rights and options.

Civil Rights Violations by Police

In Illinois, it is unfortunate that in recent years, the law enforcement community has not lived up to its duty to protect and serve all citizens. An increasing number of police shootings, false arrests, and incidents involving excessive use of force have severely damaged the level of trust between law enforcement and minority communities. When these incidents occur, it is important that those officers who engaged in this type of misconduct be held accountable. Otherwise, it will be tough to restore trust and cooperation between minority communities and their local police departments.

If you or someone close to you has been the victim of a civil rights violation, you may be entitled to seek monetary damages. The available remedy depends on the particular circumstances of your case. At Winters Salzetta O'Brien & Richardson, LLC, we believe all citizens deserve to have their civil rights protected and to receive just compensation when there is a violation.
