We Advocate Aggressively for Victims of Excessive Force by Police
Police are only allowed to use as much force as reasonably needed to make an arrest. When they use an unreasonable amount of force or use force against someone who is already compliant or subdued, the victim is entitled to recover compensation.
You or a loved one may have a claim for excessive force against a law enforcement agency if you were subjected to any of the following acts:
- Repeated beatings
- Overuse or unnecessary use of a police baton
- Overuse or unnecessary use of a Taser
- Inappropriate use of pepper spray
- Overuse or unnecessary use of a firearm
- Repeated acts of violence on a subdued suspect
An experienced excessive force attorney can investigate your case and recover the evidence needed to prove that the physical force used against you was unjust and unnecessary. We may recover evidence from body cams and other surveillance footage, eyewitness testimony, expert witness testimony, medical records, and more.
