We hear far too often about police officers arresting, injuring, or killing innocent people simply because they were in the wrong location at the wrong time. Let’s see what a wrongful death lawyer has to say.
Our police departments must adhere to a code of conduct and avoid violating civil rights. If they fail to act accordingly, their state agency may get held accountable for any harm that they ensue.
According to the Washington Post, there have been 45 police shootings in California since April 2017. Whether it was a high-speed chase, a situation of mistaken identity, or simply because the police officer thought they could get away with it, our friendly and charismatic Los Angeles experienced wrongful death attorney can aggressively pursue compensation for your injuries.
Ehline Law Firm’s police misconduct attorneys have decades of expertise representing individuals in Los Angeles who got wounded by men and women in uniform who have no duty to protect individuals under the U.S. Constitution. You heard right; police have a responsibility to protect the government. The only way the police can be sued is if they assume a duty to protect you in the heat of the moment or under the court system. Also, police can only be sued if they violate your civil rights.
While many law firms avoid this type of wrongful death lawsuit, our experienced attorneys feel that no one is immune from responsibility when an innocent individual gets wrongfully injured.
During our years of expertise, we’ve witnessed charges of police brutality, misconduct, and excessive force involving:
