By Hochheiser & Hochheiser, LLP  Nov. 6, 2010 6:50p

Police provide a vital service in our community and are supposed to protect us from criminal elements and for the most part this does occur. There are however times when police are under a great amount of stress and they make mistakes as in any profession. When one makes a mistake and it results in the physical or psychological harm of another individual, then that person needs to be held accountable. When police get involved in wrongdoing, violating their commitment to serve and protect, then compensation for injury becomes necessary.

Forms of Assault

Police assault can take on many different forms; following are a few of the different types of police assault and brutality that can wind up in lawsuits:

  • Excessive use of force
  • Unnecessary discharge of a firearm
  • Rape
  • Beating
  • Physical assault
  • Racial Profiling
  • Cruel and unusual treatment

Police corruption can occur anywhere and sometimes innocent people wind up as victims necessitating them to seek legal help.
