When law enforcement takes advantage of their control of others by using violence or force against a victim, this is a very serious legal matter. Excessive force used by police is illegal, and sadly, far too common in the Chicago area. Overzealous police can get involved in beatings that result in serious damage to the victim. Fast action is necessary, as the case must be fully documented, including photos of the damage and witness accounts.
In many cases, police fight to deny that they used excessive force or participated in misconduct, and in such cases it is important that your attorney is skilled in questioning and finding the flaws in the testimony, as the "code of silence" often is in play when police brutality is the charge. You can be assured that the legal team will relentlessly pursue justice for any client who has been victimized by police, and the case will be made a priority. These illegal actions must be addressed by the legal team as quickly as possible after the incident. Call the firm today if you or a loved one has been the victim of police brutality.
