Camden Police Brutality Lawyer
Excessive Force Attorney
Representing Individuals Who Have Experienced Police Brutality
With the pressure that is put on law enforcement officials to close cases and get suspected criminals off the street, police officers often go to great lengths in order to see that someone is held responsible for a crime. Unfortunately, excessive force is often applied, physically and mentally, at various stages in the process of dealing with suspects. This should not be tolerated, as a suspect’s civil rights must be upheld throughout the entire arrest, interrogation and incarceration process.
It is well-known throughout the community that there have been lots of issues with local police departments in New Jersey and near Philadelphia. Evidence has been planted and there have been other excessive abuses of police and political powers. It is possible to file a federal lawsuit on your behalf in order to seek compensation for violations and physical injuries that have been suffered.
Camden and Atlantic City Excessive Force Lawyer
Since they are trusted with the enforcement of the law and public safety, police officers are obligated to abide by a set of guidelines when dealing with suspects and other individuals. Excessive force must not be used when arresting or restraining individuals. Their civil rights must be upheld regardless of the situation. Unfortunately, many law enforcement officials violate these guidelines and commit police misconduct or police brutality to the detriment of the accused individuals.
Our entire firm is committed to aggressively advocating for our clients’ rights, taking the steps toward seeing that police take responsibility for their illegal actions. Police brutality and civil rights violations cases can stem from a number of situations, including:
