Wrongful imprisonment occurs when you spend time in prison for a crime that you did not commit. This happens often, as people are locked away behind bars for years when they were actually innocent of the crime. In order to prove a wrongful imprisonment claim, you have to prove that you were actually innocent of the crime. Being released from prison because of some procedural problem with the trial will not lead to a successful wrongful imprisonment claim.
Unlawful imprisonment happens more often than you might think. The thing is most people are so eager to get out of their bad situation and forget all about it that they don’t realize they’ve got a great legal case against whoever was making them suffer. If more people were more familiar with the underlying elements of wrongful imprisonment, then you’d likely see more cases being brought up all over the country. If you’re unsure of whether or not you’ve been wrongfully imprisoned, consider a few important points and you will quickly come to realize just what’s been going on around you.
Parents grounding their children for acting up or throwing tantrums isn’t anything new. However, doing the same with a grown man or woman is definitely wrongful imprisonment. Likewise, any time you’re forced to remain in a location because you cannot leave, you may have a case. This isn’t going to fly when you’re stuck at work or locked in traffic, but if someone were to lock you in a basement somewhere, that would certainly qualify. Generally, we’ve got the freedom to come and go as we please and anyone who tries to limit that could be teetering on the brink of criminal activity.
Seeking wrongful imprisonment compensation can be a difficult process. Coming up with the right evidence and proof of imprisonment isn’t always easy, especially for those who’ve been made victims for the first time and don’t know what to look for. Finding skilled legal help as soon as you’re able is the best way to maximize potential compensation for a wrongful imprisonment case. It’s not exactly a rare occurrence, but finding attorneys with experience in wrongful imprisonment won’t be easy. Unless, of course, you’ve come here to find one; in that case, you need look no further for your legal help.
Whatever reasons your illegal warden comes up with, there’s really no good one for forcing someone to stay in a place when they want to leave. This is often unlawful imprisonment and even if it isn’t as serious as being shackled up in a cellar somewhere, you should still be compensated for your suffering and anguish. You can get the help you need for that right here. Don’t wait an exceptional length of time before moving forward with your case. The best possible outcome is more likely when you act while facts are fresh.
