If you believe that your Human Rights have been breached, don’t suffer in silence. There is a route to justice. Take the first step and contact Swain & Co.
Ensuring that our client’s human rights are upheld is at the very heart of the work that Swain & Co. Solicitors does. There is no area of law that we practice which cannot be said to have a human rights element. Underpinning human rights is the notion that everyone should be treated with proper dignity and respect.
“We provide expert advice in relation to the Human Rights Act, judicial review and any relevant complaints schemes. We deal with all aspects of the Human Rights Act and we provide clear advice and take effective action.”
The Human Rights Act guarantees fundamental rights such as a right to life, humane treatment, privacy and a fair trial. All public authorities have to act in accordance with human rights principles.
Human rights principles can apply to many areas including:
- Prison sentences
- Provision of medical treatment
- Detention under the Mental Health Act
- Closure of care homes
- Inhuman and degrading treatment
Strict time limits apply so don’t delay in seeking advice.
Swain & Co. has been at the forefront of challenges brought under the Human Rights Act and has won a number of leading cases in this area of law.
