Have you been denied one or more of your basic human rights in dealings with the police or a public body? If so, Ison Harrison have specialist human rights solicitors who can help you seek compensation for your distress and ordeal.

We commonly deal with violations of the following Articles of the European Court of Human Rights;

Article 2 – Everyone’s right to life shall be protected by law. State bodies have a negative duty not to take life and a positive duty to protect life.
Article 3 – No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
Article 8 – Right to respect for private life, family life, home and correspondence.

What are human rights violations?

Human rights are a very precious thing and it is important that our rights are upheld in public life and are protected by law. Unfortunately, not everybody is aware of what their human rights are, so can’t necessarily recognise where a violation has taken place.

The definition of human rights is often expressed as a freedom of or to:

  • Dignity
  • Expression
  • Equality
  • Protest
  • Liberty
  • Privacy

A violation of these human rights could therefore happen at the hands of the police or a public body, whereby you are wrongfully arrested, maliciously prosecuted, your home is intruded upon, you are unlawfully searched or harassed, and your access to basic welfare, medical care or food or drink is denied. In such circumstances you may be able to point to one of the above factors, and say this right has been taken from you.

Ison Harrison have a team of dedicated experts in human rights laws and how claims for violations can be proceeded with. Needless to say this is a specialist area of the law and requires experience and skill to gain evidence and establish grounds for a claim against a human rights violation.

The European Convention on Human Rights covers the details of what all citizens have a right to expect in their daily lives, and where infringements of this can be identified and evidenced, our human rights violation solicitors can take decisive action to form a case and progress a claim against the necessary bodies.
