Police Brutality / Excess Force

All police officers take an oath to protect and serve the citizens they represent yet over the last few years the incidents of police brutality have skyrocketed. Can the police just get away with violating a citizens civil rights? The law protects all citizens, including people accused or convicted of crimes, from violence at the hands of the police. The attorneys at Moss & Colella, P.C. provide strong representation to victims of police brutality throughout Michigan, including Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties.

False Arrest

Some Americans fear being accused of a crime they did not commit because of racial profiling, class stereotypes, or other forms of discrimination. In July 2015, The Washington Post reported that 1 in 25 defendants sentenced to death are innocent. Organizations like the “Innocence Project”, founded in 1992, began DNA testing defendants to prove they were not guilty of the crime they were imprisoned for. This organization has improved the judicial system, but there are more options for the wrongfully accused.

Employment Discrimination

Have you or a loved one faced discrimination or harassment in the workplace? Michigan has a history of strong organized labor, state and federal laws often tend to work in favor of the employer. The law requires victims of discrimination and harassment in the workplace to jump through hoops before they can serve a lawsuit to enforce their civil rights. This can pose a serious challenge to employees who have been subject to hostile work environments, wrongful termination, and other adverse employment action.

Michigan Police Brutality/Excess Force Facts

Michigan Lawyers: Police Brutality

When the police and prison guards overstep their bounds of authority, what justice is in place  for these victims? Can the police just get away with violating a person’s civil rights?

Police officers and prison guards are employed to protect us from harm, not inflict physical punishment. The law protects all citizens, including people accused or convicted of crimes, from violence at the hands of the police. The attorneys of Moss & Colella, P.C. provide strong representation to victims of police brutality throughout Southeast Michigan, including; Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb.

If you are a victim of police brutality or prison guard abuse, it’s imperative to contact a lawyer immediately.

A police misconduct complaint involving the use of excessive force is unforgivable. The fact that the same people we trust to guarantee the safety and security of the public, can also abuse that trust by causing physical harm to the members of that public, is appalling. By law, a police officer may use only as much physical force as is needed to control a situation. If a person involved in a routine traffic stop or arrest is respectful and cooperating with the officer, no physical force should be required.

While every case is unique and your results may vary, our firm has won jury trials and obtained compensation settlements in many Michigan police brutality cases.

You do have rights! Contact Moss & Colella to talk to a Michigan police brutality attorney. Our qualified and experienced lawyers will offer a confidential and honest assessment of your case.
