What Are My Human Rights?

Under the Human Rights Act 1998 and the European Convention on Human Rights, you have the right to challenge public bodies, such as the Government, the local authority or the NHS, who did not adhere to your human rights. Human rights abuses take various forms but are most often related to:

  • Article 2 – Right to life.
  • Article 3 – Prohibition of torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.
  • Article 5 – Right to liberty and security of the person.
  • Article 6 – Right to a fair trial.
  • Article 7 – No punishment without lawful authority.
  • Article 8 – Right to privacy and right to respect for family life.
  • Article 9 – Right to freedom of expression.
  • Article 14 – Prohibition of discrimination

In instances where there has been an apparent breach, the Court can make a ‘Declaration of Incompatibility’ to advise the Government of a current regulation’s incompatibility with the European Convention. The Government will then be required under International Law to change the offending regulation, and may also be required to pay compensation if necessary. At Seatons, we can assess your case to see if you may be eligible for any compensation. For more information, give us a call on 01536 276300.

Time Limits

To action a human rights claim, a strict set of time limits must be adhered to. To bring a claim under the Human Rights Act 1998, it must be no later than one year after the grounds for making the claim first arose. Judicial review cases have a time limit of three months whilst a personal injury/clinical negligence claim would be three years.
