Deadly Force And Civil Rights Violations
Law enforcement must exhaust all options before resorting to deadly force against a civilian. There must be probable cause for seeking an arrest, or it may be considered a false arrest. Deadly force matters almost always involve other civil rights violations such as due process violation, false imprisonment and more. At our firm, we have been successful in representing individuals who have been injured in all types of police brutality matters, including:
- Use of a nonweapon (something other than a gun)
- Injuries incurred from vehicles being run off the road
- Head injuries, internal bleeding and other serious injuries
- Fatalities as the result of deadly force
