When police officers overstep their bounds and use excessive force, they can be held accountable for the harm they cause. If you or someone you care about has suffered a serious personal injury because of police brutality, you have the right to take action. If you have lost a loved one because of a wrongful death caused by police, you can see that the police are held accountable. Our attorneys can help.

When Use of Force is Unreasonable and Unnecessary

Police use force all the time and, in most cases, it is justifiable. In order for action to be taken against the police for excessive force, it must be clear that what they did was unreasonable or unnecessary. For example, cases involving police use of batons or stun guns on someone who is arguing about a speeding ticket could be considered excessive force.

Our attorneys also handle police shooting cases, in which someone is wrongfully killed because of an officer's use of deadly force.

Compensation and Justice for Victims of Police Brutality

As trial lawyers, we are prepared to take these cases to court in order to get compensation and justice for you. We build cases strong enough to go in front of a jury. An important part of the process is making certain that all evidence is found and protected as early as possible. This includes medical documentation and photos of the injuries suffered, as well as witness statements. By building cases on facts, we build cases to succeed.
