Civil Rights

While accidents involving negligence are commonly thought of as "civil" claims, you also have the right to file a claim for monetary and possibly punitive damages if your civil rights have been violated.

A civil right is an enforceable right or privilege which if interfered with by another gives rise to an action for injury. Examples of civil rights are freedom of speech, press, assembly, the right to vote, freedom from involuntary servitude and the right to equality in public places. Discrimination occurs when the civil rights of an individual are denied or interfered with because of their membership in a particular group or class. Laws have been enacted to prevent discrimination based on a person's race, sex, religion, age, previous condition of servitude, physical limitation, national origin and, in some instances, sexual preference.

There are two primary mechanisms for protecting citizens' civil rights:

(1) Statutes that make certain types of discrimination unlawful and authorize government agencies to act to prohibit violations of the rights granted in the statute, and

(2) Statutes that allow individuals who have been harmed as a result of prohibited discrimination to sue for money damages or injunctive relief if their civil rights have been violated.
