The Shealey Law Firm wants to help seek justice for victims of civil rights violations. Section 1983 allows a private individual to sue persons who, under the color of law, deprive them of their constitutional rights. The Section 1983 right of action originates from the Civil Rights Act of 1871 and was created to combat racial violence. Section 1983 is used today to protect the constitutional rights of victims that have been infringed by police officers.
The Shealey Law Firm has experience asserting Section 1983 claims against police officers who falsely arrests an individual, uses excessive force against an individual, and maliciously prosecutes an individual. Our Columbia & Charleston, SC civil attorney wants to help protect your rights.
