When it comes to civil rights, the most important issue for you is to know what they are and when they’ve been violated. A civil rights violation indicates an offense that transpires as a result of the threat or use of force by the offender against a victim. An assault committed because of the victim’s race or sexual orientation is a prime example. Morton Povman, Esq. and Bruce Povman, Esq of the Povman Law Firm are amongst the top attorneys who represent individuals and families who have been affected by a civil rights violation. For over 50 years, our Queens Civil Rights Lawyer have had an exceptional track record of success getting significant monetary compensation for our clients.
Civil rights regulations become involved when your protected rights are interfered with or threatened by the practice of personal preferences and prejudices of an individual, a business, or a government. There are many civil rights laws that have made it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap, or national origin, including freedom of speech, the right to assembly, and the right to equality in public places. Any type of discrimination that restricts voting rights and equal opportunities in education, employment, and housing is also against the law. Civil rights are part of our Constitution and not only deep-rooted in history but in the fundamentals of our national freedoms. When you understand your civil rights, you will be able to recognize when they have been violated. Our Queens Civil Rights Lawyer will explain to you that you can sue for damages if anyone imposes on your civil rights.
Once you retain our Queens Civil Rights Lawyer, and they understand the valid nature of your case, they will tell you to gather information about the civil rights violation. Be sure to write down as many details as you have, or can recall, including the identity of the offender as well as where and when the violation took place. Statements you can get from any witnesses that were there at the time of the incident will benefit you greatly. It is also very important for you to take pictures and get a copy of the doctor’s report if there were any injuries. At the Povman Law Firm we are here to serve and protect you and your civil rights provided for you in our Constitution.
