The aftermath of an accident can be confusing and overwhelming. This is especially true if you have suffered a serious injury. There will be many people claiming they can help. Insurance adjusters will call offering to resolve your claim immediately if you sign their paperwork. There will be plenty of attorneys claiming they can take your case and win. Often these attorneys work on volume and have no interest in litigating and trying your case if needed.
Do not be confused by the adjuster. The insurance company is looking out for their interest, not yours. The goal of the insurance company is to pay you as little as possible to resolve the claim. This is why you need an experienced attorney on your side fighting to recover to recover the compensation you are lawfully owed. We do not take cases with the intent of settling them quickly for a fraction of what they are worth. Instead, we will pursue the matter through trial or until a fair value is recovered for your injuries.
42 U.S.C Section 1983
When law enforcement officers violate your Constitutional Rights, it serves to undermine public trust and confidence in law enforcement and it jeopardizes the legal system as a whole. We pride ourselves in seeking justice for those individuals victimized by public officers. If you believe you have been unlawfully detained, falsely arrested or been the victim of excessive force, police brutality, policy corruption, malicious prosecution or otherwise had your Civil or Constitutional Rights violated, you must act quickly.
In most cases, the public officers and the governmental agency must receive your notice of claim within six months of the incident. If you fail to provide the notice, the doors to the court may be closed to you. Typically constitutional violations include false and malicious arrest, malicious prosecution and excessive force. Malicious arrest and prosecution occur when a citizen is arrested or prosecuted without probable cause and the case is later resolved in their favor. Excessive force occurs when officers use more force than is reasonably necessary to restore order. If you believe your rights have been violated, please call the Law Office of Darryl L. Scott.
We offer free consultations and in many cases, we can represent you on a contingency basis. If we determine that your case does not have merit, we will explain why and offer our opinion on your best course of action. If we take your case, we will diligently pursue your case to ensure that you receive justice.
