Cooper & Friedman Attorneys At Law Assists Clients In Louisville, Kentucky, As Well As Throughout Kentucky And Southern Indiana. Our Attorneys Have Recovered Millions Of Dollars For Seriously Injured Individuals.

Police officers and other law enforcement officials (like jailors, sheriffs, etc.) are expected to protect, honor and respect the civil rights of citizens, suspects, inmates and others who are in their care or with whom they interact. Unfortunately, while many of these public servants understand these obligations, some do not. The fact is, some officers negligently or intentionally violate the rights of Kentucky citizens through their failure to follow policy, failure to properly care for individuals in their custody and other means.

Common types of Civil Rights cases handled by Cooper & Friedman are:

  • Failure to protect individuals in their care or custody from harm
  • False arrest
  • Excessive use of force
  • Jail beatings
  • Prison death
  • Police sexual harassment
  • Wrongful prosecution or conviction
Kentucky Citizens have basic, fundamental rights which protect them and their loved ones from this kind of misconduct or abuse.

When those rights are violated, a civil rights lawsuit may be available to seek compensation for injuries and other damages that a victim has suffered, and to hold the appropriate law enforcement personnel and their agencies responsible. It is the job of the civil rights attorney you select to seek compensation which may include medical expenses, lost wages (past and future) and physical and mental pain and suffering. A Plaintiff may also be entitled to punitive damages (additional damages intended to punish those responsible and prevent them from harming others) where the conduct is particularly harmful.

If you, a loved one or friend believe these fundamental rights have been violated by law enforcement, Contact Cooper & Friedman Attorneys At Law today at 502-459-7555 to schedule a free initial consultation with a civil rights attorney.
