Los Angeles Civil Rights and Injuries Lawyer
Taking Legal Action Against Those Who Caused You Harm
In the U.S., you have the right to be safe from discriminatory or abusive conduct that can cause you to suffer harm. Unfortunately, although these protections exist, an individual, corporation, or even law enforcement official can violate them, resulting in injury. However, you do not have to simply accept the adverse consequences of a civil rights violation. You can and should take legal action to hold the responsible party liable for their misconduct, but this isn't an endeavor you should take on alone.

Fighting Back Against Police Misconduct
Police officers and other government agents are tasked with upholding and enforcing the laws set at state and federal levels. While carrying out their duties, they must follow various procedures to ensure that their conduct is lawful. Sadly, some officers willfully disregard the rules and laws and engage in behaviors that not only violate civil rights but also cause injuries to others. When this happens, victims can file lawsuits against the responsible party and seek just compensation for the harm they suffered.
Types of civil rights violations committed at the hands of law enforcement officials include, but are not limited to:
- False arrests
- False imprisonment
- Illegal searches and seizures
- Excessive force
- Prosecutorial misconduct
If you were subject to any of the above treatments, Ian Wallach is prepared to help with your case. He can explain the process for seeking compensation under Section 1983 of the U.S. Code and fight to protect your rights and best interests.
Pursuing a Claim After Suffering Injury Caused By Another
Just as law enforcement officials are prohibited from willfully engaging in unlawful conduct that can cause harm to others, so too are individuals and corporations. When the negligent actions or inactions of another person or entity cause harm, the victim can pursue a claim and seek compensation for damages. And while a monetary settlement can't erase the experience, it can show the individual or company that their discriminatory or abusive conduct will not be tolerated. It may even prevent such behavior from continuing.
If you were injured by another person or a company, you might be entitled to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
Attorney Ian Wallach serves victims in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas and can evaluate your case to determine an effective course of action.
