In the course of protecting the public, the police are granted certain liberties when it comes to pursuing suspects, making arrests and detaining individuals. Officers may use reasonable force in these instances. They may not, however, use unnecessary or excessive force, or assault an individual without cause. Unfortunately, instances of police brutality are a reality in any major U.S. city, and NYC is no exception.
Were You Seriously Injured By A Police Officer In New York City?
If you are the victim of police brutality, pursuing justice can seem like a losing battle. It may feel like the officers have the backing of the NYPD, the city and the public — leaving you without an advocate. But it is important not to lose hope. When you work with the civil rights lawyers at Morgan Levine Dolan, P.C., we will stand by your side as we fight to prove liability and obtain a fair settlement.
As a victim of police brutality, you deserve compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages and any permanent disability. And while the physical pain of the assault may pass with time, you also deserve compensation for the lasting emotional trauma.
Even if you showed signs of resistance when being arrested, the police are never justified in using unreasonable force, especially after you have been restrained.
