The Sanders Firm, P.C.: Injunctive Relief Remedy
In the New York City area, The Sanders Firm, P.C. represents clients who are seeking legal remedies in civil lawsuits, including injunctive relief, compensatory damages, and punitive damages. Plaintiffs for any number of reasons may bring civil lawsuits. Although they may seek monetary damages, plaintiffs may also want what is known as injunctive relief. Often this is in the case when an action or condition created by someone is discriminatory, threatening, or abusive.
What is Injunctive Relief?
Injunctive relief, which may or may not be part of a lawsuit that includes a request for compensatory or punitive damages, does not involve the awarding of money. Injunctive relief is when the court strikes down or prohibits an act or condition. The request for injunctive relief is done through petition to the court. Both sides involved in the case argue their points before a judge decides on whether or not to grant injunctive relief.
For example, if someone is being discriminated against at the workplace because of certain conditions or actions, this may be brought before the court and an injunction against those conditions or actions may be sought. If an injunction is granted then those conditions must change and actions must stop.
Determining the Need for Seeking Injunctive Relief
The Sanders Firm, P.C. can help you decide if it is important for you to seek injunctive relief. An injunction can be requested in many different instances and can help negate actions that are abusive, discriminatory, or violent. If the court grants the injunction and the offending party continues with the prohibited actions or is creating conditions that have been prohibited, they may be fined and/or imprisoned.
In situations where you are in danger, unable to function, and/or deprived of your rights due to the actions of others or the conditions they have created, it is often important to seek injunctive relief as a remedy. At times, this is much more important than a remedy that includes monetary compensation. However, it is not an either/or situation when it comes to seeking remedies from the court. You may request injunctive relief while also requesting compensatory and punitive damages.
