As experienced Putnam County Civil Rights Lawyers, we often see cases where there are what we would refer to as a class of people or a class action, this is a multi-plaintiff case where several individuals will sue for similar acts, not necessarily identical, but by suing together, they attempt to build a case stronger than if they sued individually. The way they do that is by levying allegations, for example with this housing situation where maybe one or two actors are the target, but because there have been similar instances against each of them they are essentially building a stronger claim.
Under those circumstances, it is absolutely imperative that you retain counsel from an experienced Putnam County Civil Rights Lawyer who can defend those claims adequately. The damages that you can receive from multiple violations actually builds and grows depending on how long those things occur, over a period of time, and also how egregious they are. Even though one might not be so egregious and one may be, the one that’s not so egregious could actually receive a higher award than if she or he had brought a claim on their own because of the fact they are coupled together.
