How Can You Find Out What Really Happened To Your Loved One?
When a loved one suffers catastrophic injuries or dies after a civil rights violation, any information surrounding the issue can quickly vanish. Even when you are entitled to the information you need, the relevant authorities may still not disclose it. Thankfully, your lawyer has several methods of securing that information, such as subpoenas and FOIA requests. Instead of trying to fight for this information on your own, let a lawyer put the law to work for you.
Does The Court Matter In A Civil Rights Case?
Yes. There are some key differences between federal and state courts where civil rights are concerned. One consideration is which party particular juries tend to favor. The juries in some courts tend to side with the police officer, while another court may produce an outcome more favorable to the plaintiff. Another factor to consider is whether or not attorney’s fees can be recovered. In federal court they can, whereas in state court they cannot. Mr. Montgomery will consider the full scope of your case and select a courtroom that will be most favorable.
