St. Louis Section 1983 – Civil Rights Claims

The U.S. Constitution provides extensive protections to the citizens of the United States. If a government official violates your constitutional rights, you can seek a remedy for that violation under Title 42 of the United States Code, Section 1983. “Section 1983” actions allow citizens to sue government officials who violate their constitutional rights.

Examples of cases that have been brought under Section 1983 include:

  • Lawsuits against police or correctional officers for excessive use of force
  • Lawsuits for unreasonable use of a Taser
  • Damage to property or to individuals as a result of an illegal search
  • Prison officials ignoring the medical needs of prisoners while incarcerated
  • Prison officials placing incarcerated individuals into dangerous situations such as into shared jail cells with people who are likely to inflict serious harm

If your rights have been violated by a government official, you may have a Section 1983 civil rights claim. These cases can be extremely complex, not only in identifying all potential parties to the lawsuit, but also in building a case and determining damages. To maximize your success, you need an experienced and qualified attorney who can handle the toughest Section 1983 civil rights claim.
