Know When Your Legal Rights Have Been Violated

by | Oct 15, 2019 | Criminal Defense | 0 comments

Sometimes you can be confronted with difficult situations that leave you with questions you don’t know how to answer. That’s when a legal professional needs to step in and provide the answers you’re looking for — and the justice you deserve. So it’s important to speak with the best legal counsel you can find when these unforeseen and daunting situations arise. 

Here are three examples of ways to know if your legal rights have been violated.  

How Do I know If I’m at Fault in an Auto Accident?

The feeling of helplessness in the immediate aftermath of being involved in a vehicular accident can make anyone unsure of whether they’re the victim — or possibly at fault. Couple this with possible injuries that can’t necessarily be seen right away and property damage to the vehicles and this process can become a living nightmare. The way to gain control of this situation is to call a legal professional who can explain your legal rights. Your attorney can help you move forward with getting fair compensation for your injuries and property damage. 

Do I Have Legal Recourse Against Police Brutality?

There can be a fine line between being accused of resisting arrest and simply wanting to know what you’re being accused of once you get detained by a police officer. It also can quickly escalate into a physical altercation resulting in serious injury to one or both parties. This is especially true because police officers are allowed to use “reasonable force” when detaining individuals—and this term is sometimes very loosely defined by the law. You need to be told you’re under arrest and why you’re being arrested, and you’re not required to answer any questions from the police, either at the scene or when you get to the police station. This is when legal counsel needs to get involved and remind the police of your individual rights, especially if it goes too far and severe injuries occur.  

What If I Suspect My Doctor of Medical Malpractice?

Many patients are not even aware that they or their loved ones have been victims of medical malpractice until months or even years down the road once they begin to have new symptoms. That’s why it’s important to seek out legal advice when the first signs that something might have gone wrong are identified. Your attorney will tell you to start gathering all your medical records and to write everything down that you remember occurring or are presently experiencing so they can form a solid case for your defense and get you the compensation you need to live a full life.
