How Can You Receive Compensation for a Civil Rights Violation?
Damages can be sought when you take legal action against someone who violates your civil rights. That compensation varies greatly, however. Your compensation depends on the laws that were violated and the specifics of your case.
Here are a few types of civil rights damages that are often awarded:
- Medical expenses, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity
- Emotional distress and pain and suffering
- Punitive damages are awarded when reckless or malicious behavior is involved
- Attorney fees that are a result of the violation
Compensation is typically higher for more serious violations. Longer violations are also more expensive. Your case will be considered by the court during trial. The court will then decide on a fair settlement amount
