Guarnere v. Cessna Aircraft Corporation Verdict: This was a record setting verdict for an airplane crash that involved a seat defect in a Cessna aircraft. The defective seat caused the pilot’s seat to slide backwards while the pilot was attempting to land, causing the pilot to lose control of the airplane and crash. Three of the four passengers, including the pilot were killed.
Civil rights lawsuits are notoriously complicated and difficult to win. Dozens of United States Supreme Court cases have severely limited the rights that innocent people have when the police or district attorneys mistreat them. Each year, hundreds of civil rights lawsuits are dismissed by courts before they ever see a jury. It's crucial that each civil rights case be handed carefully, with a thorough investigation and a precise approach to the law. One misstep in bringing the case forward can cause it to be dismissed.

If you believe that your civil rights were violated, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. You may only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages. Civil rights violations can be complicated matters dealing with government agencies and state and federal law. The amount of time you have to file a complaint or lawsuit may differ depending on who violated your rights and the type of claim that you are filing.
Without the help of an attorney, you may not meet the legal requirements necessary to file a claim based on the violation of your civil rights.
In some instances, there may be multiple agencies involved in your case. An attorney can assist in filing a complaint with the appropriate agencies within the statute of limitations. A claim or complaint may need to be filed with the right state or federal agency before you can file a civil lawsuit.
In many cases, you only have 180 days to file a complaint with the appropriate agency if your civil rights were violated. Failure to file a complaint within the 180 days may result in your claim being denied. A Philadelphia civil rights attorney can help you understand your rights and how long you have to file a claim. An attorney can also help you determine your legal options depending on the circumstances of your case.
