Fighting Police Brutality With The Power Of Section 83
Were you, or was your close family member, a target of police brutality? How can you get justice? Most reasonable people agree that excessive force by the police and other authorities that can be described as brutality is not acceptable in today’s world.
Even if you resisted in the middle of an arrest, thoughtful people would normally expect the police to find humane ways to manage the situation without violating your rights.
Finn Law Offices is dedicated to helping people find answers and relief after suffering violations of their constitutional rights, such as beatings and cruel treatment.
Legal Justice After The Violation Of Your Constitutional Rights
A law that is commonly known as “Section 83,” or more specifically, 42 U.S.C. Section 1983, prohibits someone who is “acting under the color of the law” from violating others’ constitutional rights.
Residents of Albany and other locations in Upstate, Central and Western New York can turn to Finn Law Offices for counsel after experiencing police brutality or similar injustices. Founding attorney Ryan Finn applies Section 83 to stand up for the rights of people who have become targets of police brutality.
More About Section 83
The Civil Rights Act of 1871 came about in response to threats to the safety and dignity of recently freed enslaved people of that era. Today, this act is still viable and Section 83, which is part of it, applies to people of all colors and ethnicities.
Attorney Finn is available to hear your story. He will explain how he can help you pursue compensation for medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and emotional distress after you have experienced unreasonable force by a law enforcement agent. Even if there were no physical injuries, he can help you bring a claim under Section 83 as a plaintiff against the offending official and/or their supervisors or department.
Attorney Ryan Finn has a passion for enforcing civil rights. His law practice serves a diverse population. Section 83 violations are not always stereotypically racial in nature. Any violation of your constitutional rights expressed through unreasonable force may be the basis for legal action on your part.
