Fighting for Victims of Assault
Every person — regardless of age, race, gender — has certain unalienable civil rights. If those rights are violated by the criminal or intentional acts of another, the person might have remedies to punish the offender(s) AND recover financially. At Geherin Law Group, our Ann Arbor civil rights attorneys have the experience, desire and training to hold those offenders accountable and obtain financial recourse for the victim(s).
Michigan Civil Rights Lawsuits We Handle
If a restaurant or bar overserves a patron, and that patron injures or kills some innocent person, there may be recovery against both the bar and the patron. If police or corrections officers injure or kill a person in their custody, there may be liability and recovery against the officer(s), the county, and the state. If an innocent person is injured during an assault, he or she might be able to bring criminal charges and/or civil lawsuits against the aggressor. If a child is injured in school or the victim of cyberbullying, his or her family may be able to seek legal redress against the actor, the school, and the county. At GLG, we have the reputation, experience and track record to right those wrongs and recover money for the aggrieved party.
GLG exclusively handles cases where a person’s civil rights have been violated by the “criminal” or intentional wrongdoing of another, such as the following:
- Dram shop actions (bar/restaurant liability)
- Bouncer/security actions
- Police misconduct/jailhouse injuries/fatalities
- False arrest
- Assault victims
- School accidents/injuries
