Lawyers for False Arrest

Our Attorneys Know What It Takes To Win.®

It starts with a visit to a department store to buy clothes for your child. You purchase a pair of pants but notice a shirt that you think may match while you are leaving the store. You pull the pants out of your shopping bag and look at them next to the shirt but decide they do not match and walk out the front door of the department store.

Suddenly, you are stopped by store loss prevention agents who refuse to allow you to leave or to call the police. The department store loss security agents handcuff you and march you through the store to a detention room in the back. You are detained, searched, handcuffed, and interrogated. Their negligence, lies, and wrongdoings result in a series of pain for you and your family. When that happens, you need an honest fighter at your side. You need Montlick.

I had an excellent experience working with Enrique Fernandez on my case. He was always efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Mr. Fernandez and Montlick & Associates to anyone who has been involved in a personal injury matter.
When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

What is False Arrest?

General False Arrest Law

A False Arrest Is Cause For Real Concern.

A false arrest can be a harrowing and costly affair. The humiliation may cost you your job or ruin your name in front of your community. During life’s most difficult moments, see how Montlick can help you move forward.

Contact Montlick

False arrest laws vary state by state and depending on who has arrested you. In many cases, a false arrest constitutes detainment by someone claiming to have the legal right to do so. The person making the arrest may be a police officer, though sometimes security officers and bouncers or others can be sued for a false arrest.

While police generally have the authority to make arrests, there are situations where the arrest is without a warrant or just cause, making it a false arrest. Under these circumstances, you should reach out to determine if there’s a case for an unreasonable seizure under the Fourth Amendment. These cases require deep knowledge and skill. Thankfully, at Montlick, we have both.

A false arrest case may seem clear-cut to the person bringing suit. Often, it’s not quite so simple. While laws vary, there are some general hurdles to clear when proving a false arrest occurred:

  1. Must prove that the defendant (the one that made the false arrest) intended to arrest the plaintiff—it wasn’t an accident—and did arrest/detain the plaintiff (the one bringing the suit).
  2. Must prove the plaintiff knew they were detained or confined (this can be more difficult if intoxication is involved)
  3. Must prove that the plaintiff did not consent to the detention.
  4. There was no legal justification for the detention.

While this is a completely understandable question, it can be challenging to answer. There are various complex factors at hand that should be discussed with us at Montlick. Compensation in these cases typically comes in the form of monetary damages, which include special and general damages. Special damages can cover medical costs associated with the incident, so it’s critical to talk to an attorney about what medical costs can be included in the claim. General damages include monetary relief for the pain and suffering that result from a false arrest. These can be harder to quantify so assistance from a Montlick attorney is recommended.

What are Punitive Damages?

In instances where the shopkeeper or other defendant acts in an unconscionable and outrageous manner, a client may be awarded punitive damages. Punitive damages are intended to not only make our clients whole but to punish the offender and prevent future similar behavior.

Because we can’t stop accidents from happening, we do what we can to help minimize their long-term impact. We put more money in your pocket, where it belongs.
