Civil rights violations happen for a variety of reasons, including poor training, bad judgment, or pressure to meet a certain quota for violations each week or month. Often, a culture that promotes silence rather than speaking out can make it challenging for victims to take the first step in seeking justice – contacting experienced civil rights lawyers.
