Defense Against Incidents of Excessive Force
In certain cases, law enforcement is allowed and expected to use force to defend themselves, such as if a person who is under arrest is trying to flee the scene. Police brutality, however, occurs when a police officer uses excessive force to hurt a civilian unnecessarily, which is a form of police misconduct. Our knowledgeable civil litigation team is committed to pursuing justice on behalf of people like yourself who have been victimized by illegal police behavior.
Police brutality can occur in a number of different ways, such as:
- Physical force beyond what is necessary
- Verbal attacks/psychological intimidation
- Unnecessary use of weapons or guns
- Physical beatings with a baton, fist, or weapons
- Inappropriate use of a police dog
- Body slamming, choking, or kicking
- Sexual assault or inappropriate sexual conduct
