At Denning Law Firm, LLC, we are dedicated to representing people whose civil rights have been violated in the Kansas City metro.
Civil rights are guarantees of equal social opportunities and equal protection under the law to shield individuals from discrimination, unfair treatment, and other violations of people’s freedoms.
When individuals are being denied opportunities to participate in society, they are being denied their civil rights. Civil rights are designed to advance equality for all people regardless of race, sex, age, disability, national origin, religion, and certain other characteristics. Civil rights apply to a wide range of issues including police misconduct, employment discrimination, fair housing, voting rights and many other topics.
Examples of civil rights violations:
You are denied the opportunity to register to vote due to your race
You are denied an accommodation for a disability in your workplace
You are the victim of excessive force during an arrest or detention
You are denied insulin for your diabetes while incarcerated
You are overlooked for promotions because you are a woman
No one has the right to deny you the civil rights you are guaranteed under the law. Currently, most of the civil rights cases we handle involve unfair treatment by members of law enforcement and prison misconduct. We serve clients who were harmed through excessive force, denied medical treatment while incarcerated, discriminated against, or otherwise harmed by the unconstitutional, injurious behavior of others.
