    We can represent you if you’ve been wrongfully detained or arrested

    If you have been intentionally restricted or confined by a police officer, security guard, border force officer, defence personnel or similar you may have been the victim of false imprisonment or wrongful detention.

    If you have been convicted of a crime and have been imprisoned beyond your sentence you may also be eligible to claim compensation for wrongful imprisonment.

    Our team at Paramount Law have successfully represented clients who have been wrongfully detained, so they can reclaim financial loss and gain access to support to heal psychological and physical injuries.

    If you have suffered neglect, assault or abuse in detention you may be eligible to claim compensation for inhumane treatment.
