False Imprisonment

People Should Not Be Held Against Their Will Trust Smith & Hassler to Get the Compensation You Deserve

False imprisonment happens if someone prevents another person's freedom of movement without justification or consent for any amount of time. The most common form of false imprisonment is kidnapping.

There are four key principals in a false imprisonment claim.

  • The confinement must be nonconsensual on the victim's part.
  • The confinement must be intentional on the part of the perpetrator.
  • The victim has to have knowledge that he or she is indeed imprisoned or be harmed by it.
  • The victim is not aware of any means to escape.
