In the United States, we have laws in place to protect each individual’s civil rights. Certain laws protect our property from being taken without a court order, ourselves from being arrested without a warrant or reasonable cause, and our loved ones from being killed by police without a trial. While most officers work hard to respect the laws that keep us safe, those who violate these and other basic civil rights must be held accountable.

If you or someone you care about has suffered inhuman treatment by police or prison workers, The Wolf Pack™ can help you seek damages and file a lawsuit on your behalf. Attorney Phil Georges has experience going up against corrupt institutions that deny or obstruct basic human rights, and he is not afraid to fight for what is right.

Do You Have a Case?

If you’re having trouble determining whether or not you have a case for compensation in a civil rights lawsuit, we are always available to take your call for a free case evaluation. While this will be the most reliable way to get answers, we’ve provided some information below that can give you a basic idea of whether you qualify.

Common examples of civil rights violations include unreasonable search and seizure (i.e. without a warrant), unlawful arrest or false imprisonment, police brutality or inmate abuse (e.g. neglect, excessive force, sexual abuse, inhumane conditions, etc.), and unjustified use of weapons.

Violations of an individual’s civil rights can take many forms. This list gives an idea of some common examples, but it is not exhaustive. If you are unsure whether you qualify, we are always available to evaluate your case at no charge.

The statute of limitations is a legal deadline for filing a claim, and it changes from state to state and from situation to situation. If you wait until the deadline has passed to file a claim, you will miss your chance to pursue compensation.

In Tennessee, the statute of limitations on civil rights cases is one year. Wisconsin allows three years, and Virginia gives a victim two years to file. These time limits run out quickly so don’t wait — get started today!

The compensation that an individual could recover with a civil rights lawsuit will vary from case to case, depending on the facts and legal circumstances of each situation. There are three types of compensation, though, that are most commonly awarded in these cases:

  • Medical expenses, such as those incurred by visits to your doctor, hospital stays, surgeries, therapy, and more, can be recovered in your settlement.
  • Wages may be recovered if your experience caused you to miss work, and you may also recover any wages you are reasonably expected to miss out on in the future as you recover.
  • Pain and suffering damages refer to compensation for non-economic losses, and they account for emotional trauma, mental illness, loss of consortium, or lack of enjoyment in life caused by the incident.

Were You Treated Unjustly by Those Who Are Supposed To Protect You?

If an officer of the law, government official, or prison guard disregarded your civil rights, you could be entitled to compensation for the suffering they caused. Contact The Wolf Pack™ for a free consultation to learn more.

How Attorney Phil Georges Can Help

When a person has experienced a violation of their legally protected rights, they may be able to recover damages through a civil rights lawsuit. However, these lawsuits are especially tricky as government agencies and law enforcement officials guard themselves with robust insurance policies. Evidence must be gathered efficiently, deadlines must be met, and liability must be proven beyond any doubt.

After what you’ve dealt with, this may all sound like too much to handle, but let’s be clear — you have the right to compensation, and you do not have to do this on your own. When you hire Phillip S. Georges, PLLC, we handle all of the hard work to build a strong case and defend your rights. You don’t just become a client, you become a part of The Wolf Pack™, and we will aggressively protect you like one of our own!

Next Steps

The process begins with your free case review in which your attorney will evaluate the details of your case and explain what legal options you have. If you qualify to pursue a civil rights claim, The Wolf Pack™ will take care of everything else!

It can be difficult to prove liability in a civil rights case, so having the expert eye of Attorney Phil Georges on your case will give you a serious advantage. Photo and video evidence, medical bills and records, witness statements, and more may be collected to build an airtight case for your maximum settlement.

Having gone through such a traumatic experience so recently, the last thing you want to do is argue with an insurance adjuster to prove that your injuries are serious and your rights were disregarded. For this reason, your attorney will handle all of the negotiations on your behalf, giving you the time and space to recover after the life-altering incident.

At the end of your case, you’ll be given a final settlement offer with the option to either accept or decline the settlement. If you do accept, your attorney will keep working to make sure your money gets to you as soon as possible.

Yes! Both the 4th amendment and the 14th amendment provide specific protections to individuals from law enforcement and government entities. At the basic level, the 4th amendment protects civilians against having their property seized or being arrested without a warrant, while the 14th amendment guarantees that no one should be deprived of “life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

Apart from these constitutional amendments, the team at Phillip S. Georges, PLLC is well-versed in the state-specific laws of the land that go even further with civil rights protections. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call for legal advice — you won’t pay unless you get paid!

In this age where it is rare for an individual to be without a cell phone in their hands, we’ve seen many civil rights violations recorded and publicized through the news media. Such evidence is invaluable to the eventual lawsuits that follow, but it is not always possible to collect — if you are incarcerated and don’t have access to a phone, if your phone isn’t charged or is inaccessible, or if no one is around to record, you may be left without such solid evidence of the abuse.

If this is the case, the best thing to do after suffering a violation of your rights is to photograph any injuries, inhumane conditions, and/or property damage as soon as you are able, be evaluated by a medical professional to have a record of the injuries you sustained, and contact Attorney Phil Georges’ office immediately so that further evidence can be collected on time.

Because we at Phillip S. Georges, PLLC believe that all of our Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Virginia neighbors deserve affordable, reliable legal representation, we work on a contingency basis. This means that you will never have to pay upfront — we don’t charge fees unless we win compensation for you! On top of this, we offer our initial consultations at absolutely no cost to you, so you have everything to gain by contacting us for the help you deserve.

When someone has had their rights infringed upon by a police officer or another government official, they may be able to recover compensation for their losses through a civil rights lawsuit. This can help with the financial and emotional difficulties that follow such a dehumanizing incident.

Additionally, a civil rights lawsuit may bring certain injustices into the public light and encourage an agency to make changes. This way, not only can a victim receive necessary compensation for what they’ve gone through, they may help bring about reform so that others don’t go through the same situation.

In October of 2022, Attorney Phil Georges filed a lawsuit on behalf of a former Middle Tennessee State University student who was racially discriminated against and harassed by a fraternity he was pledging for. Discrimination of this sort is unacceptable, and The Wolf Pack™ is prepared to fight tooth and nail for justice in cases like this.

If you’ve experienced similar injustice, we encourage you to reach out and learn what options you may have for pursuing compensation.
