Many NYPD officers respectfully put their lives on the line to enforce the law. However, in some instances, police officers abuse their power of authority and injure people with unnecessary force, which can come as verbal or physical, possibly leaving the victim with trauma. NYPD brutality lawsuits involve law enforcement officers who violate a citizen’s constitutional rights. If you or a loved one have been a victim of police assault, wrongful police shooting, or false arrest, you may be entitled to compensation.
