Police Pursuits and Police Brutality

Police officers must obey the law and protect all motorists and pedestrians who may come in contact with them. Police pursuits are one of the most dangerous things an officer does. During a pursuit, an officer must continually weigh the need to apprehend a suspect against the danger to the public by continuing the chase. Unfortunately, many officers violate this important rule and endanger innocent lives.

If you have been injured as a result of a police pursuit, call me right away. Sensitive material and important evidence could be quickly lost or disposed of. I have significant experience in this area of the law. My most recent police pursuant case was settled for a confidential amount that was sufficient to care for the profoundly injured victim for the rest of his life.

The amount of force required to arrest and detain an individual is another area where police officers sometimes fail to yield to safety measures. Often officers get caught up in the heat of the moment and become too aggressive with suspects. Often suspects are seriously hurt. If you or a loved one is a victim of police brutality, call me.
