Personal Injury Claims Due to Police Misconduct May Increase. We Can Help You File.
On May 25th, 2020, an innocent African American man was murdered at the hands of a police officer, while three other officers stood and watched. His name was George Floyd. As a result, thousands of people across the nation came together to protest this unlawful murder and highlight the countless acts of police brutality being committed against innocent people, specifically African Americans.
These protests have come in various forms: Most are peaceful, while others have turned into opportunities for people to commit crimes such as looting and arson. Regardless of the matter, there have been various incidents of police misconduct during these protests. As such, our personal injury lawyers are prepared to help you file a claim to help you receive compensation for the other party’s wrongdoing.
Ironically, there are cases of police misconduct occurring at protests where the message is to end police misconduct. While there is unlawful rioting and looting, which should be handled by law enforcement accordingly, there are also lawful, peaceful protesters suffering injuries at the hands of officers. Police misconduct is no way to confront people who are rightfully exercising their First Amendment rights.
Just like you advocated for justice on behalf of George Floyd and countless others, we can advocate for justice on your behalf. We are in this fight together.
What Could Lead to Your Arrest During a Protest?
Frankly, there are little to no guidelines regarding the current protests stating what constitutes a lawful arrest, so some officers make those rules up as they go. There are stories about rubber bullets being randomly fired at protesters and news reporters. There are stories about protesters being arrested for violating curfew. There are stories about protesters being run over by civilian and police cars. There are stories about unlawful arrests happening because people are practicing their first amendment rights.
There are a lot of stories about police misconduct. Although we may not know the full scope of the situation behind every incident of such violence, the bottom line is this: If you were mistreated and injured as a result, our personal injury attorneys will advocate tirelessly and diligently on your behalf.
