Police Brutality

Police Brutality Lawyer in the Bronx

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.

      Questions About Police Abuse Lawsuits
      How does the law determine whether force was justified?

      If a victim was engaged in dangerous activities that could put others at risk, it may not be viewed as excessive force. If, on the other hand, the offense was for something like jaywalking, then it’s probably considered excessive. All cases are different, and you need to consult with qualified legal counsel.

      What are examples of excessive force?

      Force against a suspect is not automatically a case of police brutality. There are grey area between reasonable and excessive force depending on the situation. You should always consult with an experienced attorney, especially if you were involved in any of the following:

      • Physical attacks including choking, punching or kicks.
      • Non physical attacks involving tear gas, pepper spray, tasers, or even gunshots.
