When Excessive Force By Law Enforcement Causes Injury And Violates Rights
Police brutality is not just frightening and outrageous to those affected by it. It is also an affront to a perception of safety for all of us. Anyone could be the target of excessive force by law enforcement agents, but news reports often show people in marginalized groups at the receiving end. The results may include serious injuries, including fatal ones leading to wrongful death claims.
Emotional distress and the loss of one’s dignity are real for those harmed by violent actions by the police. Many people develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after suffering brutal attacks. They may miss work, require therapy and have a hard time getting back to a normal life after suffering a beating by police officers.
At Ellwanger Henderson, we stand up for civil rights and justice for all. Our lawyers offer free consultations and customized case strategies for the sake of people who have been targeted by police brutality.
