New York City Police Brutality Lawyer
If you have been wrongfully arrested or mistreated during or after an arrest, you can hold the officers who did it accountable—both criminally and civilly. In New York City, police misconduct and neglecting civil rights by law enforcement can be prosecuted as a crime, and you can also sue in civil court to recover any damages that you incurred as a result of the misconduct and potentially win compensation for:
- Medical expenses, lost earnings, and other economic losses;
- The loss of your freedom, reputation, or property if you were wrongly arrested and jailed;
- Physical pain and suffering
- Disfigurement or disability
- Mental anguish
- Any other damage to your quality of life resulting from the incident
- Occasionally, in particularly serious cases of police abuse of their authority, punitive damages, an additional award to punish the responsible party and deter future occurrences
But it is essential to understand that winning in court against an agency backed by the support of the government is far from being a slam dunk. It requires expert legal representation by an aggressive and experienced New York City police brutality lawyer who is not afraid to confront those in government who hold the power. Many civil rights attorneys in NYC decline to take this type of case because legal actions involving any government entity are difficult, complex, and labor-intensive.
If you have been wrongfully arrested or mistreated during or after an arrest, you can hold the officers who did it accountable.
In the Media
Call (212) JUSTICE for help!
Police brutality has been front page news for several years now. Barely over halfway into 2016, there were already 508 police shootings. In 2015, there were 385 fatal shootings by police officers throughout the country. Sources vary when it comes to tallying the numbers. A study undertaken by The Guardian found that the death toll for 2015 totaled 1134, including 18 victims age 18 and under and 29 military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Rarely does a day go by when those who have been charged with keeping us safe are not responsible for taking a life. Shockingly, 98 percent of the time the officer is not even charged with a crime. The few who are charged are rarely convicted.
While shootings are the most common form of lethal force used by law enforcement officers, police brutality takes many other forms—beatings, sodomizing with batons and other objects, tasering, running people down with vehicles, sensory deprivation, and more. Relative to the nation’s population, a disproportionate number of victims of police brutality are black or mentally ill.
While some of the victims have been armed and actively resisting arrest, others were simply going about their business when engaged by law enforcement. But regardless of the situation in which police officers interact with suspects, they are required to use the least possible amount of force when making an arrest. Every suspect is to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. A New York City police brutality lawyer knows conviction and punishment of an offender in the United States, according to our Constitution, requires due process and is not the prerogative of the police.
In addition to outright police brutality are other forms of misconduct on the part of law enforcement officers, including making improper arrests, malicious prosecution, mistreatment of prisoners, sexual assault, racial profiling, illegal search and seizure, failing to advise you of your Miranda rights, and a variety of civil rights violations.
You Have Rights, and You Have a Voice
The fact that you have been arrested in no way restricts your constitutional rights. Nevertheless, law enforcement officers often ignore those rights, and it is common for them to abuse the power that has been granted to them. Abuse of police power undermines our Constitution, our values, and our democracy. It is important that you understand your rights and take important steps to safeguard them. The most important way to do so is to politely insist on calling an attorney in any situation where police are attempting to question or arrest you. Simply asking for a New York City police brutality lawyer can go a long way to protecting you from further abuse. But sometimes brutality and violations of your rights occur suddenly, for example when a relatively minor altercation blows up into something much more sinister.
