Police Misconduct

Many police misconduct victims believe their only remedy is in the criminal courts, but in reality, they have a right to sue in the civil courts as well. Police officers are expected to uphold and follow the law, and when they fail to do, officers and their superiors become liable for injuries and deaths. The Miami Beach police misconduct lawyers at Friedland | Carmona handle all types of police misconduct, including instances where injuries result from:

  • Excessive force/Police brutality: the wanton use of unnecessary physical force by police officers, including beatings, shootings and sexual abuse
  • Wrongful death: the death of a citizen due to a police officer’s reckless, careless or negligent actions
  • Illegal detention/False arrest: police officers detaining a citizen without probable cause
  • Inhumane treatment/Torture: police officers directly inflicting severe physical pain and injury on a citizen
  • Jail neglect/abuse: prison officials neglecting or blatantly ignoring the needs or medical conditions of inmates, resulting in injury
  • Motor vehicle accidents involving police cars

As a citizen, you expect the police will keep you safe from injury, not be the cause of it. When police are the source of injury, they need to be held accountable for their actions. The Miami police brutality lawyers at Friedland | Carmona work diligently to ensure their clients are compensated for violations of their civil rights. Unbeknownst to most citizens, government officials do have certain immunities; however, these immunities do not give government officials and police officers the right to injure citizens.
