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.
