Police Brutality & Civil Rights Lawyer

According to the Michigan government, police have a duty to enforce laws and to protect the lives and property of the public.  While many officers perform these duties in an ethical and committed manner, some officers fail to meet their ethical and legal obligations to the public.  If you’ve suffered a false arrest, experienced the use of unreasonable force during the arrest, sexual assault, malicious prosecution, or unlawful imprisonment on the part of a Michigan officer, a policy brutality and civil rights lawyer may be able to assist you.

Unreasonable Force: Unreasonable force or excessive force isn’t always clearly legally defined.  Few municipalities offer clear definitions of how much force is too much force.  However, in recent news, there have been many cases where victims and families successfully sought compensation for unreasonable force violations.  Shooting an unarmed suspect, harming a suspect when there is no evidence a crime has been committed, hitting, punching, kicking, using a taser, a baton, mace, or chemical spray, or other acts of violence, are all examples of excessive and unreasonable force.   Call a police brutality and civil rights lawyer today.

False Arrest and Unlawful Imprisonment: False arrest occurs when an individual is held against his or her will by a police officer, without probable cause.  Officers must have reasonable probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed in order to arrest an individual, or they must have a warrant.  If an arresting officer doesn’t meet these conditions, he or she may be liable for false arrest and the following unlawful imprisonment.

Sexual Assault:  Police are subject to strict ethical codes of conduct that prohibit them from having consensual on-duty sex, and prohibit them from propositioning citizens.  Police sexual assault can be traumatic for victims and their loved ones.  Many are afraid to speak out if they’ve been assaulted.  Don’t suffer in silence.  Seek help today.

Malicious Prosecution:  The law offers important protections against malicious prosecution.  Officers are required to have probable cause in order to prosecute an individual under the law. Many persons end up having false charges brought against them as police officers want to cover up the use of excessive force or other unlawful acts.  Other persons are prosecuted and found guilty due to officials falsifying evidence which ends up in unlawful imprisonment.

Jail/Prisoner injuries: Persons who have been incarcerated have rights also.  Officers or correction officials cannot hurt prisoners or detainees nor can they let prisoners be hurt by other prisoners.  Proper medical treatment must be given and safety precautions must be taken.  If you have been injured or harmed in jail, a civil rights attorney may be able to help you.

If you have been the victim of police brutality or police misconduct, our police brutality attorneys have obtained jury verdicts of $6.2 million, $5.8 million, and settled another case for $4.1 million, just to mention a few.  We have also settled many other police misconduct, police brutality, false arrest and imprisonment, illegal search and seizure cases for hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Christopher Trainor & Associates is a Michigan law firm that can review the facts of your case and determine the best course forward.
