Police Brutality / Excessive Force
Speak Now with a San Diego Civil Rights Attorney!
Civil rights are a fundamental part of our liberties as Americans. The
justice system, in particular, provides anyone who has been accused of
committing a crime certain constitutional rights. Additionally, an officer
may only arrest someone if there is reasonable suspicion or probable cause.

What Is Considered “Excessive Force?”
By definition, law enforcement has the right to use force within reason
to arrest someone. A court can find if an officer acted unreasonably or
with excessive force when their actions go further than that which was
required or necessary under the circumstances. You may seek restitution
against those officers who have flaunted or abused their power unnecessarily
and used it against you. We can investigate deeper into the matter, to
determine exactly how the officer acted.
Some examples of excessive force include:
- Using batons to strike a suspect and cause injuries
- Using a taser when the suspected showed no threat of violence
- Punching, striking, kicking, or choking a suspect that has already been cuffed
- Using tear gas against non-violent offenders
- Exerting physical violence to get a suspect to talk

that is where having an experienced attorney comes in.
