Top NYC Police Brutality Lawyers and Civil Rights Attorneys
Unfortunately, throughout the state of New York, there are more than a few cases of police misconduct, brutality, false arrests and malicious prosecutions. In fact, some of them received national attention from the media. If you believe you have been denied your rights by the police through excessive force or false arrest, you should seek the advice of an attorney.

Police Misconduct
Reckless or intentional negligent behavior is not what’s expected from our police departments, but unfortunately, there are some officers who breach their duty, which should include serving and protecting all the city’s citizens.

Police misconduct can include behavior that results in lost wages, lost job opportunities and can even include humiliation within the community. Victims of police misconduct can seek damages from the police department if they believe they have a case. An attorney consultation will give you an idea of whether you have a case or not.

Civil Rights Violations
When a person believes their civil rights have been violated, they have to prove that they have been deprived of the rights afforded every person under the constitution.

False Arrest
According to the law, the police can only arrest someone if they have probably cause. This also includes the police detaining someone. If there’s no probable cause to stop you or arrest you, yet you were arrested anyway, it’s a violation of your civil rights. You can receive compensation for false confinement or loss of wages or job opportunities as a result of the arrest or detainment.

Malicious Prosecution
When you’ve done nothing wrong, and you are abused by someone in power, it can feel like you’re helpless. When the police or an attorney for the state pursues legal action without probable cause, it can be considered malicious prosecution if the victim can prove they were targeted. This is where a lawyer for the victim can help.

Police Brutality
When the police overstep their authority and start punishing people with physical abuse or using excessive force to bring someone to justice, they need to be stopped. The only way to stop them is to alert the proper authorities. When you are the victim of excessive force or police brutality, you shouldn’t be frightened to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. The lawyer can also contact the right authorities in the police department to report what happened. The police are only supposed to use as much force as needed to take control of a situation, but they can be overzealous and brutal dealing with the public.

Reckless Driving
An officer who is in pursuit of a suspect can’t endanger the lives of anyone else on the road. If they do, they become part of the problem. A person who was injured when the police were responding to an emergency can recover damages from his or her injuries. The police are required and entitled to speed through lights and stop signs, but they must not be reckless.

Wrongful Death in Custody
A person detained by the police is in their care and custody. They are responsible for that person’s well-being. If the police are negligent in their care, the family could receive compensation for the loss of their loved one. For example, a diabetic has to receive insulin, and if they die because the police withheld it, the family can receive compensation.

You should contact a lawyer immediately after the abuse. There’s only 90 days from the incident to file a notice that you claim to seek compensation for your victimization. It’s important that you seek medical attention and document the injuries for the case, and a lawyer can help you with the next steps.
