Police Misconduct & Abuse

SLFLLCw-PoliceMisconduct900x600

Police officers have a duty to protect citizens. The law allows officers to use the requisite amount of force needed to diffuse a dangerous situation.  However, there are the rare circumstances where police officers use what is considered "excessive force," that can have bad or even tragic consequences.  When excessive force is used by a police officer, it is a violation of a person's civil rights.  Financial compensation may be available to the victim if substantial physical injury or death results.  

Lawsuits against police officers who use excessive force seek to obtain compensation for the victim, and also to ensure that police follow proper protocol in using force with the public. 

If you feel that you were the victim of unreasonable force at the hands of a police officer, you should consult with a qualified attorney to determine your rights
