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.

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.
