While the media often highlights the most egregious cases of police brutality, there are many others that go unreported each day. In many cases these instances are never further investigated as it can be very difficult to obtain necessary evidence and testimony in police brutality cases.
Below are four of the most common lawsuits brought against police, departments and law enforcement personnel:
- Excessive use of force or police brutality: Police are trained and legally allowed to use only as much force as the situation requires. This is usually determined based on the threat posed by another person. When excessive force is used it violates a person's civil rights and if injury or results in a fatality financial compensation may be available.
- Taser lawsuits: While taser guns are only meant to deliver nonlethal force, it is still possible for these devices to kill when used inappropriately. According to an Amnesty International report there are at least 334 deaths attributable to police taser use. Furthermore, 90 percent of these deaths occurred with unarmed victims who did not pose a serious threat. Taser lawsuits can be filed in any case where the guns were used inappropriately or by police who were not properly trained in their use.
- Shooting injuries and death: Police officers are trained to draw their weapons only as a last resort and in situations where they have no other recourse. When a police officer negligently injures or kills a person in a firearm related shooting, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed.
- False arrest and wrongful imprisonment: There are laws that determine when and under what circumstances a police officer may arrest or detain someone. They must have probable cause or a reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing to arrest or detain someone for an extended period of time. Those arrested or detained wrongfully can file a claim for both financial and emotional damage.
