The civil rights and fundamental rights of citizens are protected under statutes that have been enacted to protect you and your family. When an employer or institution fails to respect these rights, a person may be entitled to file a lawsuit for the damages caused. These rights are granted to every citizen regardless of age, gender, sex, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, or physical ability.
Access to education, housing, public facilities, transportation, and proper treatment by police, are some the basic benefits that all citizens are entitled to enjoy. Civil rights also refer to civil liberties outlined in the Constitution that include: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly.
Numerous civil rights lawsuits result from discriminations against individuals who are disabled. For that reason, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted to protect the civil rights and liberties of individuals, and prohibits discrimination based on disability.
Discrimination accounts for a large number of civil rights lawsuits. However, other types of civil rights infringements exist. Other examples of civil rights violations include police misconduct, improper prison security, and safety issues surrounding government mass transit.
