Maine Lawyers Working for Maine People
Our aggressive attorneys pursue justice for clients held against their will
Being held against your will is injury enough. The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein won't allow you to be manipulated or pressured into accepting anything less than the maximum compensation you deserve. Tell them you mean business.
Not to be confused with a wrongful arrest on the part of law enforcement, false imprisonment refers to the physical confinement of people against their will on the premises of a business, person, or organization. In many cases, the victims are falsely imprisoned by department stores, retail stores, hospitals or nursing homes. We understand how any case of false imprisonment can be a frightening and traumatic experience. If you or a loved one was falsely imprisoned, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation for emotional suffering and humiliation and any psychological and physical injuries, among other possible damages. Call Joe at 1-877-294-6813 to hear about your options.
The following are a few examples of false imprisonment:
- A store holds and questions an innocent shoplifting suspect, refusing to allow the person to use the bathroom, get a drink of water or exit the room.
- A religious sect prevents a member from leaving its property.
- A hospital or nursing home holds a person, often an elderly individual, without the person’s consent or a court order.
The individual, business or organization accused of false imprisonment can be found liable even if there was no willful negligence or intent for injury or emotional distress to result from their actions. With the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein on your side, you can be sure your rights will be fully protected as we determine liability and pursue maximum compensation for your losses.
