A Lawsuit can hold police officers accountable.
They only way to stop police brutality is to speak up. We must hold officers accountable. Time and time again we see that the police departments do not punish officers, in fact, they cover up for the handful of bad cops that commit most of the civil rights violations. And prosecutors rarely charge police officers even when the evidence is clear.
If you’ve been the victim of police brutality, the only way you can hold the officers and police department accountable is to bring a lawsuit. We will stand with you and help you sue the police to get justice for what they did.
Why do police officers get away with police brutality?
The system is set up to help police officers avoid accountability for their actions. Police officers have the power to write official reports. They often use these reports to make it look like you were the aggressor, and that they were defending themselves. Police officers also have the power to charge you with crimes such as Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Justice, or Aggravated Battery in order to hide their misconduct.
How do we prove police brutality?
In many cases, we can use the officers’ own words against them by taking apart their reports and their testimony in the criminal case. As with any lie, the more the lie goes on the bigger it gets and the harder it is to maintain. We are experts at using every tool available to unravel the police lie. And when necessary, we work with medical professionals to help prove your damages and the causes of your injuries. We leave no stone unturned to prove you case.
