One of a civil rights lawyer’s most critical duties is to keep you informed of your legal rights and to help you take the most direct actions available to protect them.

Many times, a violation of your civil rights can lead to significant damages, such as when an overzealous law enforcement officer inflicts an injury through excessive force or when a discriminatory firing leads to a devastating loss of income and benefits.

Defending your civil rights means more than just recouping the damages you have suffered. It can also mean having court-ordered protections — or other actions — issued that compel the party that violated your rights to finally commit to the legal, moral, and ethical course of action.

Your victory through a settlement or favorable jury verdict also sends a strong message to others, communicating that they have rights and protections that also deserve to be recognized and discouraging those who would otherwise bend the law to act in accordance with it.

Robert S. Fakhouri and the entire team at The Personal Injury Lawyers ™ is committed to helping you find justice and hold those in power accountable to the letter of the law.

Don’t let anyone intimidate you into thinking you don’t have rights. Speak to an attorney who can assess your situation and help you determine the best path forward.

You can speak to an experienced civil rights lawyer and learn more about your case options when you call (312) 999-9990 or contact us online.

Your civil rights refer to legal protections you have to conduct certain actions without fear of harm, as well as protection you have to not be harmed or harassed in ways that go outside the bounds of legal conduct.

Some civil rights cases involve criminal violations, but others involve acts with purely civil implications. Depending on the outcome of the case, you may agree to a settlement that includes repayment of your damages and, potentially, some contractual language designed to rectify the situation in question while preventing further harm.

Other times, your case may depend on the outcome of a trial. Winning a favorable jury verdict can mean restitution of damages in addition to an order for the defending party to take certain actions, such as taking measures to prevent further incidents like yours from happening in the future.

Every civil rights violation has the potential to alter your life for the worse. Any time you feel like you have been treated unethically, harmed without cause, harassed, or discriminated against, that’s when it’s time to reach out to an experienced attorney who can fight for your civil rights.

Some of the most common examples of civil rights cases include the following:

  • Police misconduct, including excessive use of force
  • Workplace discrimination
  • Wrongful termination
  • Discrimination based on race, sexual orientation, or other status
  • Sexual harassment
  • Coercion, extortion, bribery, or terroristic threats
  • First amendment violations
  • Violations of due process
  • Government misconduct and takings

There are a number of laws that are commonly cited in civil rights cases, many of which you’ve likely already heard of. These laws can form the “backbone” of your case, while other details like government code, policy books, and outcomes of prior cases can help you build out a strong and compelling set of facts.

Commonly cited civil rights protection laws include:

  • The First Amendment protects you from unreasonable and discriminatory actions taken by government entities and other state and federally-backed organizations in response to your rightful speech, expression of religion, or association with certain ideologies.
  • The Fourth Amendment protects you from illegal search and seizure as well as excessive use of force.
  • The Fifth protects you from a failure to follow due process, meaning inappropriate handling of your matters by law enforcement or federal agencies like the Social Security Administration.
  • The Fourteenth Amendment requires all States to follow federal laws in accordance with the recognition and protection of civil rights, especially when it comes to following due process.
  • The Eight Amendment prohibits the use of “cruel and unusual punishment,” which can refer to excessive use of force, practices that unreasonably risk the safety and well-being of an individual (regardless of criminal status), and failure to recognize and tend to the medical needs of someone in federal or state care.
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act guarantees protections against discriminatory acts on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, and biological sex by employers, as well as from workplace discrimination based on age, medical diagnoses, and whether the individual is pregnant.
  • Title I of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) guarantees protections for private and public employees when it comes to employment opportunities and other critical matters.

Some of the common types of civil rights cases we see at The Personal Injury Lawyers ™ involve illicit acts conducted by law enforcement agencies. Robert S. Fakhouri has represented cases involving police officers pursuing minors in a deadly chase despite superior officers calling off the pursuit.

Common examples of law enforcement misconduct include:

  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Deliberate harassment
  • False imprisonment/false arrest
  • Wrongful conviction
  • Improper handling of evidence
  • Racial profiling
  • Brutality and excessive use of force
  • Dangerous actions committed beyond the scope of departmental/agency policy
  • Arrest, detention, or enforcement action in connection with protected First Amendment speech or other rights

As we have seen in recent decades, bringing your story to light is often the first step in having your civil rights recognized. Police and other law enforcement agencies will often pressure you into thinking you are already a criminal and that you have no rights.

In truth, you always have rights, including after a conviction, but especially prior.

Law enforcement actions also don’t have carte blanche because they are governed by specific laws and policies. When actions step outside of these guard rails, such as in cases of due process violations or excessive use of force, law enforcement personnel are, themselves, subject to prosecution for the civil and criminal violations they have committed.

From law enforcement agencies like U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to organizations like the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Social Security Administration (SSA), all individuals are entitled to fair, equal treatment in accordance with due process.

Yet, all too often, these individuals have their rights violated because of bias and other forms of discrimination. For example, having benefits improperly terminated or their use investigated without following proper procedure can constitute discrimination and harassment by the SSA.

Similarly, agents of ICE and other law enforcement entities like the Travel Safety Administration (TSA) are bound by rules for conduct and proper procedure. Showing up to your place of work or harassing you in an airport without any sort of justifying cause can constitute a violation of your civil rights.

Simply put, any time a state or federally funded agency is denying you opportunities and limiting your freedoms in an improper way, you may have a civil cause of action to hold them accountable.

All workplaces are bound by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and Title I of the ADA to give equal treatment and respect to all employees. Unfortunately, though, workers are often denied opportunities or improperly disciplined in connection with their protected status.

Individuals may be fired for expressing their First Amendment rights, for example, or because they wish to use their guaranteed Family and Medical Leave. Employees may also be forced to perform particular acts that go outside the scope of their job duties, especially in situations of sexual harassment and discriminatory treatment.

Regardless of whether the employee is fired for non-compliance or subjected to disciplinary action, their unfair treatment can constitute a violation of their civil rights — especially when it can be proven that other employees are not subject to the same treatment.

A “taking” is any improper seizure of an asset or loss of value of an asset created directly by the improper actions of a state or federal entity. Common examples include improper seizure and violation of use agreements, such as easements.

A taking can also involve certain regulations or government actions that reduce the value of property, for example, or the income-earning potential of a business.

In essence, any loss inflicted by the government because of a lack of due process or violation of civil rights can constitute a form of taking. Speak to an attorney if you have concerns that an action of a governmental organization led to a loss of value or depletion of assets in a way you feel has violated your civil rights.

The damages you are eligible to receive will depend on the nature of your injury — whether medical, financial, or a loss of ability to exercise your freedoms.

Some common forms of damages awarded include the following:

  • Repayment of medical bills directly connected to negligence, excessive use of force, or other wrongful actions taken by the defendant
  • Restoration of property seized by the defendant or compensation for the value of the asset in question if it has been destroyed or altered in some fashion
  • Compensation for individual pain and suffering in connection to an improper curtailing of their rights, in proportion to the degree of loss of rights suffered and its impact on the person’s well-being
  • Lost wages created through situations like false arrest or medical injury, which encompass all lost benefits and differences in earnings when compared to the period prior to the civil rights violation
  • Compensation for other forms of restitution, like providing money for a plaintiff to purchase a vehicle after they were forced to move to a property located away from access to transit
  • Punitive damages, which can only be awarded by a jury, can serve as a deterrent to others who may commit the same acts.

The steps you take in the wake of a possible civil rights violation matter greatly to the outcome of your case. Unfortunately, because of the wide range of possible scenarios, there is no easy “blanket” set of actions you can take to respond appropriately in all situations.

Instead, refer to a civil rights attorney near you as soon as possible after the violation has taken place. You can also take some of the actions below as appropriate to your individual situation.

Seek Medical Attention and Diagnosis If You Have Been Hurt

If you were injured as a result of improper governmental actions or other violations of your civil rights, the first step is always to get a full and proper diagnosis. You want to begin treating your condition as soon as possible.

You also want to establish a record of your diagnosis and treatment plan as close as possible to the date of the incident in question.

If the person who has been hurt is currently incarcerated, contact the jail or holding facility where they are being held to follow up on any medical care they have received. If you feel that they are being denied medical care, reach out to an attorney immediately so that they can take steps to help them receive care as soon as possible.

Report the Violation Through the Proper Channels

In order to file a civil rights claim or lawsuit, you will need to go through proper channels first in nearly all situations.

Unless you provide notice of a complaint or problem to the agency responsible for overseeing the situation you were involved in, in other words, you may not have the legal standing to file a claim.

Many times, you have a severely limited window to file such a report. In cases involving a possible injury at the hands of a government agency, you may have as little as 60–90 days to notify them.

Other cases, such as those involving police misconduct, have a more general window in which to file a report. Nevertheless, the earlier you begin the process of making your concerns known and your experience documented, the better your case’s chances of a favorable resolution.

You may need to research the appropriate agency or entity in which to file your complaint. For complaints regarding the conduct of Chicago Police employees, for example, you may need to file a complaint with the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA).

Cases related to discrimination at the hands of a government employer may involve the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Contacting a civil rights lawyer can help you file your report with the appropriate office(s) accurately, completely, and in a timely manner. It can also protect you from any follow-up actions that may involve an investigation or other inquiry into your personal matters.

Protect your rights and increase your chances of your case’s success by looking to the guidance of an experienced attorney.

Document as Much as You Can

Immediately start saving receipts and paperwork associated with the situation. Save all medical discharge papers and lab results, for example.

You can also record your own narrative of what happened. Contact any witnesses and ask if they are willing to make their own statements.

As you go about your schedule, continue to keep a record of your experiences. Make a particular note when an injury you have suffered in connection with your civil rights violation inhibits you, such as if you are forced to forego an activity you normally would participate in or when your pain is hard to endure.

Definitely keep track of all contact and attempted contact by all parties in connection to your matter. Their response may provide grounds for further complaints of harassment and violation of due process.

Great attorney very honest and is direct as they come. Followed up when needed and make sure you did everything he needed to get the best results. Got a way better result then expected and likely better then most other firms would have as Robert when above and beyond and followed up. Most shocking do bare minimum and don’t communicate and to me communication is key and him and his staff exceeded my expectations. Definitely would recommend and likely will use services again if need to in future.

Normally, I would not have known where to begin but he was recommended to me after tirelessly searching on how to go about my claim with no prior experience on the matter. Robert was able to answer any questions I had and always pushed for the best possible outcome. He provided frequent updates and reassurance. I cannot recommend Robert and his team enough!

I’ve been involved in two other motor vehicle accidents and hired two other personal injury firms over the years. After having two awful experiences with both prior firms I was hesitant to contact Robert. However, after hearing nothing but great things I decided to hire The Fakhouri Firm. And I’m upset with myself because I wished I would have had The Fakhouri Firm represent me for my two prior motor vehicle accidents!! Such an amazing experience, and everyone worked so hard to obtain the highest settlement for me. If I could give them 10 stars I would. Thank you Robert and the team🙏

After reading other reviews I decided to hire Robert and his team to represent me for my personal injury case. And truthfully, I am so happy I did. The Fakhouri Firm was kind, communicative, caring, and most importantly HONEST. Robert never sugarcoated anything regarding my case, and he explained to me the facts that hurt my case and the facts that helped my case. He was very objective and transparent, but also extremely confident and knowledgeable. Most importantly, his entire team stood by their word. If my client care manager Jocelyn said she was going to call me in 2 weeks at 10 a.m., I got a phone call in 2 weeks at 10 a.m. Olga and William were also wonderful to communicate with. Thank you Fakhouri Team!!

I would love to acknowledge Robert Fakhouri and his law firm on their outstanding job handling my case! It was my first time being in the situation I was and completely clueless on next steps, what needs to be done, etc. To say the least it was overwhelming. Robert was there for me every step of the way, was open to any questions I had (big or small), and was super patient and understanding. I definitely appreciate how straight forward he is, and at the same time, willing to educate you for you to understand and not be kept in the dark during the case. He went ABOVE AND BEYOND settling my case and got me an amount higher than I expected to even get, and truly was able to settle it in the best and most comforting way possible and give me the piece of mind I needed! 10/10, would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Top notch, and pure class!

Long story short, I was in a bad situation where someone was attacking my character, spreading lies, and saying I was in breach of a contract. I knew all of the above were not true, however I was not sure where to turn to , or where to go. The ordeal with the person accusing me effected my quality of life for two years.Then I spoke with Robby Fakhouri only seeking an answer to a legal question.After asking the question and elaborating on my situation, he was so disturbed by how I was treated that he immediately filed an appearance to represent me, for my court day that was 3 days away . Mr. Fakhouri represented me out of the kindness of his heart. He saw the impact the case was taking on me , and when he told me he was going to represent me , I KNEW everything would play out for what was/ is right & just. He took time out of his insane work load (Due to him being the top lawyer in Chicago ) in order to help me. There was zero question about his values, or moral compass.If you want A) A good person, and B) Someone that will fight for you like you are their family; with all the energy, tenacity, focus, along with not hoping- - but KNOWING he will win for you, against anyone he is up against...Mr. Robby Fakhouri is who you not only want on your side, but NEED to represent you .There will be no other council I will seek aside from Mr. Robby Fakhouri

He had donated bags of necessary items to homeless people in their tents and I called him to see if I could donate a little bit you know to help him continue his effort and he said he's not even a 501c3 to accept cash to help with the load of the gift bags and he's a wonderful man and he's got a heart of gold I thought what he did was very very humanely conscious and so appropriate for the season

On my wedding day, my florist did not do the things we paid for. The church was suppose to be decorated and wasn't, our bouquets were not delivered on time which delayed our wedding photos, we were suppose to have an elaborate hanging flower display at the head table and that didn't happen, also family members had to complete the area were guest go to pick up their table numbers because the florist did not do it. Your wedding day is suppose to be the best day of your life and this situation obviously caused so much stress on the day.Robert was able to get us almost full compensation on what we paid the florist who did not do the things we had paid for. He was wonderful to work with, understood how upsetting the situation was for us, and did everything in his power to right what happened. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Robert Fakhouri, the man behind the firm, the leader of the pact, the unstoppable human who wants to see peace and justice for all who deserve it.It started off years and years back, as Robert aka Robby, being my best friend's brother, to then being my friend, to then being my lawyer, someone who changed my life.It has been almost a year since my whole life has changed.This is how my story goes.I, by no means ride motorcycles, but, my friend had one, and the second time I got on it, I never knew it would be my last. We were on the highway, and the next thing you know, I woke up in an ambulance.It was a hit and run accident. I was out of work for almost 2 months straight, bed ridden and unable to do anything myself.I was in horrible pain, not only physically, but mentally.I have been a health freak and athlete my whole life and after the accident I felt so defeated. I had pain all over my body that would not go away.After weeks had past, and chronic pain all over my body, I began to speak with the insurance company and had almost come to agreement with them, that they would cover all my medical bills, plus compensate me for my time spent out of work.I never knew, I could actually be compensated for my endless pain and suffering.I almost signed off with the insurance company, until I decided to open up to Robby and tell him about my accident.After telling him about my accident, I felt the biggest sense of relief because he told me I would be taken care of, and I deserved to be taken care of, based off my injuries. From that point forward, Robby took my case into his own hands, and told me all I needed to do was trust him and let him take care of the rest.Well, I did just that, after almost settling for pennies, with the insurance, Robby called me and told me it was time to finally come and pick up my settlement check. Pennies is what I would have received had I not gone to Robby and let him take care of me. Instead I ended up walking away with close to a six-figure-settlement.If you are struggling and don't know where to turn, or need someone on your side who can get you the justice you deserve, Robby Fakhouri is who you want.I can not say enough about Robby, he is pure, genuine, honest, and straight forward. He knows how to get the job done and he is unstoppable. Robby has a heart so giving and he wants the best for all who are in front of him. There are not many lawyers who you can say are personable and want your best interest, Robby is just that.I can not put into words the gratitude I have for Robby. He will forever hold a dear place in my heart.Thank you Robby for your service!!
