Atlanta Police Abuse Attorney

The American Constitution sets to protect individuals from police abuses when it states that “no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.” This means you cannot be physically assaulted, searched or subject to police seizures without the officers involved showing good cause for their actions. The police must have a reasonable suspicion before they can even pull someone over in a vehicle. Before someone can be arrested, there needs to be probable cause for the officer to believe he or she committed a crime, and if any physical violence is used, it can be no more than is reasonable to carry out the action. If you or a loved one has been victimized by excessive police force, please call a top Atlanta accident attorney today.

When police officers misuse their power, they are violating the civil liberties of the public. If you have been victimized by this abuse, you can take the police officers involved to court and hold them liable for these injustices with the help of your Atlanta accident lawyer. You are eligible to collect damages covering your physical abuse and emotional stress.

Our Atlanta Accident Lawyer can determine if you have a valid case

There are two main types of police misconduct, false arrests and the use of excessive force. If you were arrested without probably cause, you have been victimized by false arrest. Even if there were groundless charges added to make the arrest seem more legitimate, you may still qualify for a lawsuit, please ask your Atlanta accident attorney if you have any questions.

Excessive force involves unnecessary physical harm being done to a subject. If someone is not fighting back, but the police use tasers or night sticks on him or her, they will be subject to excessive force. In these cases, the police officer will be required to prove that he or she used no more force than was necessary in the performance of duty. Your Atlanta accident lawyer can present witnesses or video footage to show this is untrue and that you were, indeed abused.

When you have been victimized by the police, fight back. Call our office today to schedule a free initial consultation.
