Most police officers are committed and ethical. They work a difficult, life-threatening job, and their days are extraordinarily stressful. However, police officers also exercise a great deal of control over the lives of the people they interact with, and an abuse of this power is particularly egregious. The personal injury lawyers at Cravens & Noll have experience helping the innocent victims of police brutality pursue justice and compensation.
The physical, emotional, financial and legal consequences of police brutality can be staggering. We place a lot of trust in the police, and a betrayal of that trust should not go unacknowledged or un-pursued. And our police brutality lawyers will not allow that.
At Cravens & Noll, we’ll be there for you. Our police brutality lawyers will listen to your story and advise you on how best to proceed with your claim.
If you’ve been the victim of police brutality, a personal injury lawyer can help. Please call Cravens & Noll today at (804) 330-9220 for a free consultation.
Examples of Police Brutality
Most of us are familiar with the sad, sordid recordings that catch what we usually think of as “police brutality:” physical violence perpetrated by a police officer on a restrained or otherwise helpless suspect. And these cases are horrible.
However, our police brutality lawyers understand that police misconduct has many different forms, including:
- Unnecessary physical violence
- Unnecessary and degrading strip searches
- Sexual assault
- Coercion, blackmail or other uses of police power to force you into doing something you don’t want to do
- Racial profiling
