Civil rights are the rights of personal liberty and freedom guaranteed to every American citizen. These rights are guaranteed to you by the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which are known as the Bill of Rights.
When your civil rights are violated by another person or the government, you may have the right to file a lawsuit seeking justice and compensation for your injuries.
These rights include:
- Your right to be free from excessive force, including protection against police brutality, false arrest, and the unreasonable use of deadly force
