Police officers may only use reasonable force to stop or detain an individual. However, if an officer uses unreasonable force under the circumstances, and that force causes you to suffer injuries, then this officer may have used excessive force and violated the provisions of the Constitution. A person who has been a victim of police brutality is entitled to recover damages for the wrongful actions by a law enforcement officer. He or she may also be entitled to recover from the employer of the officer, such as the police department for failing to properly train and monitor the officer. Moreover, even if an officer or security guard makes a lawful arrest, they may not intentionally use more force than is reasonably necessary to effectuate the arrest.
Attorney Michael Sabongui has litigated numerous excessive force cases successfully, both as a criminal and civil attorney. He is very familiar with proper police tactics, accepted procedures and policies, and is aware of the pitfalls and difficulties in prosecuting these types of cases. Accordingly, he has the knowledge and experience to aggressively obtain the best results possible. If you believe you are a victim of police brutality, we will evaluate your claim and aggressively take on your case.
