Police officers are supposed to protect us from harm. Unfortunately, there are thousands of cases each year where the police violate civil rights protected by the U.S. Constitution, federal and state laws when causing harm by overstepping the limits of their authority. When an individual government officer or police officer violates these civil rights, it may give rise to civil liability under both state law claims and federal law under 42 U.S.C. §1983. Filing a police brutality lawsuit may permit the recovery of monetary damages for injuries due to police brutality in addition to attorney’s fees. We represent victims of the following violations:
- Police Brutality and Misconduct
- False Arrest
- Intimidation and harassment
- Racial profiling
- Sexual Abuse
- Police Corruption
- Physical Assault
We understand how to effectively represent clients who have experienced police brutality.
There are very strict statute of limitations deadlines for police brutality claims. Thus, to protect your legal rights after you or your loved one has been a victim of police brutality, you should immediately contact us.
