Injuries From Excessive Force

By De Castroverde Law Group   Jun. 22, 2010 11:29a

Las Vegas is one of the most populated, busy cities in the nation. With the constant influx of tourists and the working patterns of the residents, it can become overcrowded and dangerous at times. Whether looking at the strip, hotels, casinos, shows, restaurants or clubs, there is always a chance of danger when so many people are crowded together in such a manner. Especially when considering the entertainment and partying atmosphere that comes with Las Vegas.

The police are meant to stand in as protectors of citizens. They are there to keep crime at bay and defend the rights of the civilians. It is a sad truth that this responsibility that they have sworn to upkeep is not always adhered to. When police rely on the intentional use of excessive force, they are taking things a step too far. While many police respect their job and the duty they have taken upon themselves, when innocent people are hurt in their efforts to control a situation, someone needs to be held accountable. Such situations can result in serious injuries and even wrongful death. Police should be liable for the amount of force they use and any consequences that occur.
