Wrongful & False Imprisonment

Experiencing false and wrongful imprisonment can be traumatizing. Sometimes it’s so confusing that you may not fully know if what happened to you qualifies as false imprisonment. For example, if it’s a loved one or even a law enforcement officer who has committed the offense against you, it may be difficult to question or understand the abuse of power in an individual that has your respect. Often victims of false imprisonment are not sure what to do or who to turn to for help.

Exploring these situations with a professional is the best thing you can do. If you feel you’ve been falsely imprisoned, contacting a False Imprisonment Lawyer at Morgan & Morgan Law Firm is your first step. They are highly experienced Wrongful Imprisonment Lawyers. They are ready to help you understand your rights and provide the clarity you need in order to determine if you have the elements needed to file a wrongful imprisonment lawsuit.

Once you’ve contacted the False Arrest Lawyer at Morgan & Morgan Law Firm, you should find some peace and clarity about what’s happened in your particular situation, along with your options for next steps. However, if you still have questions or need a starting place prior to reaching out, here are a few points to consider:

Three Aspects that Warrant a False Imprisonment Lawsuit:

  • Willful, or Intentional, Detention
  • Believed Detention Without Consent
  • Unlawful Detention (no Legal justification)

If your situation involved any of the three aspects mentioned above, you may have a good cause to move forward with a false imprisonment lawsuit. Further consult with a False Arrest Lawyer is recommended to clarify whether or not you have been held against your will by threat of physical or emotional harm.

These types of scenarios can fall within a wide range of scenarios. For example, if you were involved as a victim during an armed bank robbery and the robber instructed you to get on the ground while pointing a gun at you, you were falsely imprisoned by threat of physical harm.

Similar situations can span anywhere from this extreme to something like being locked in a room against your will, being grabbed and held without consent, being medicated by a professional without permission, or even being detained unjustifiably, or unlawfully, by a law enforcement officer.

All of these, depending on the particular details of each case, qualify and are eligible for potentially becoming wrongful imprisonment lawsuits. It’s extremely important to discuss the details of your case with a False Imprisonment Lawyer. At Morgan & Morgan Law Firm, our False Imprisonment Lawyers are ready to defend you against a number of defenses available for aggressors in these types of cases. A Wrongful Imprisonment Lawyer will be needed to defend your case appropriately.

The opposing council in your case will go to great lengths to prove there was voluntary consent, claim shopkeeper’s rights, or citizen’s arrest as a defense against your false imprisonment claim. It is absolutely necessary to utilize the knowledge and experience of a Wrongful Imprisonment Lawyer for your case. It is never ok to be held against your will unlawfully and unjustifiably, by anyone. Know your rights and empower experienced False Imprisonment Lawyers to protect you against wrongful imprisonment.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
