Civil Rights

Pre-settlement advances

If you have a pending civil rights claim and need immediate financial assistance, pre-settlement funding can help.

A civil right is an enforceable right or privilege that if interfered with by someone else gives rise to an action or injury. Discrimination occurs when these rights are denied or interfered with because of a person’s membership in a particular class. Protected classes include a person’s race, sex, religion, age, previous condition of servitude, physical limitation, national origin, and in some cases sexual orientation.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, or national origin in public establishments. Some states provide further protection of civil rights as well. While we are all entitled to civil rights protections, unfortunately discrimination still occurs. Examples of civil rights violations include:

  • Workplace discrimination
  • Labor rights violations
  • Wage violations
  • Police brutality
  • Use of excessive force
  • Sexual assault
  • Hate crimes
  • Unlawful arrest

Individuals alleging their civil rights have been infringed upon have the right to bring a claim in court. If the court finds your civil rights have been violated, you may be entitled to recover damages for lost wages, medical expenses, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, confinement compensation, and attorney fees. Punitive damages may also be awarded against the defendant if the plaintiff can prove the conduct was intentional or reckless.

If your civil rights were violated, you may be dealing with significant physical or emotional injuries, big medical bills and extended time away from your job all while trying to figure out what legal options you have. Financial strain in these situations can add to the stress as many struggle to make ends meet and keep up with bills. If you have a pending civil rights claim and need immediate financial assistance, pre-settlement funding can help.
