ABOUT CIVIL RIGHTS CASES

Both federal and state law provide authority for citizens to hold police and governments financially responsible for police misconduct whether it involves constitutional violations or negligence. If you believe you are a victim of police misconduct or negligence, contact us today and speak with one of our trial attorneys. And in the meantime, check out some frequently asked questions.

Police misconduct refers to inappropriate conduct and illegal actions taken by police officers in connection with their official duties. Misconduct includes: coerced false confession, intimidation, false arrest, false imprisonment, evidence falsification and destruction, perjury, witness tampering, police brutality or excessive force, racial profiling, unwarranted surveillance, searches, and seizure.

Excessive Force

A person may recover financial damages if a police officer uses force in excess of what a police officer would reasonably believe is necessary under the same circumstances. Use of force usually occurs during an arrest, traffic stop, or other seizure. A police officer may also be liable for not preventing another police officer from using excessive force.

False Arrest

A person may recover financial damages if a police arrested the person without a warrant and without probable cause.

Malicious Prosecution

A person may recover financial damages if a police officer or other government official filed false charges or provided false information to or withheld exculpatory information from the prosecuting attorney when the police officer or government official is sufficiently involved with the prosecution to show that they initiated the prosecution. 

Mistaken Imprisonment

A person may recover financial damages for time spent mistakenly incarcerated if the person (1) was convicted and sentenced, (2) did not commit the crime, (3) did not engage in conduct that brought about the conviction, and (4) did not plead guilty to the crime in question.
