Civil Rights Litigation Making Your Justice Possible

Civil Rights Litigation Lawyers in Pittsburgh

Experienced Pennsylvania Civil Rights Violation Attorneys

As citizens of the United States, we are guaranteed certain inalienable rights under the Constitution, as well as under state and federal laws. When these rights are infringed upon or violated at the local, state, or federal level, you may seek a legal remedy through the courts.

These rights can protect you from such actions as:

  • Police brutality and other misconduct
  • Inhumane treatment or conditions in jails or prisons
  • Discrimination in matters such as public housing or education

The above examples of civil rights claims deal only with complaints against government officials or agencies. Other civil rights complaints can be made against employers, landlords, or others providing public services. You cannot make civil rights claims against private individuals in private settings.

What are Civil Rights Violations?

In our country, you are protected from discrimination based on your nationality, country of origin, age, race, sexual orientation, religion, sex, gender identification, or disability. The US constitution protects your human rights and rights to freedom of speech, peaceful protest, and a speedy and public trial, among many others. When these rights are violated, you have the right to pursue legal action.

Examples of Civil Rights Violations

  • Abuse and misconduct by police while under arrest
  • Racial profiling
  • Hate crimes
  • Violent threats
  • Unwarranted search and seizure
  • Loss or denial of work due to discrimination
  • Sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and discrimination
  • Denial of access to public spaces or resources due to discrimination
