Defending Victims of Police Brutality

Law enforcement officials have a difficult job and must often make instant decisions to protect their own lives and the lives of others. While these officers put their lives at risk every day to protect citizens, there are occasions when an officer uses excessive force that can result in serious injury or even death.

Our Philadelphia police brutality lawyer represents clients in situations that involve:

  • Use of excessive force
  • False arrest
  • False imprisonment
  • Police shootings
  • Wrongful searches
  • Handcuffing injuries
  • Taser injuries
  • Wrongful police car or foot chases
  • Baton injuries
  • Other situations involving police brutality

When a police officer fails to follow standard procedures, violates an individual’s rights, or fails to intervene when those rights are violated by another officer, it may be possible to file a claim that your rights were violated. Because every situation is different in this complex area of law, it is a good idea to get advice that is specific to your situation in a consultation with an attorney.

"When you have police officers who abuse citizens, you erode public confidence in law enforcement. That makes the job of good police officers unsafe."

- Mary Frances Berry
