One of the most disheartening aspects of police brutality is the unnecessary violence that can occur when law enforcement apprehends an alleged suspect. Although any kind of unnecessary violence by police is cause for great concern, when law enforcement steps far over the line and causes a death, it can be incredibly difficult to deal with as a loved one of the victim.
With an influx of high-profile police brutality cases – some of those cases resulting in deaths – it is important to know your rights if one of your loved ones has died as a result of police brutality. You may have a wrongful death case on your hands depending on the circumstances of your case. Contact our team of police brutality attorneys to see what we can do to make things right for you and your family during this difficult time.
How Much Compensation Can I Receive From My Claim?
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case and how you have been impacted by the police brutality that led to your loved one’s death, your compensation may vary. There isn’t a fixed amount of compensation you can receive for your claim. However, hiring one of our experienced police brutality lawyers with knowledge of civil rights laws can help you get the most out of your claim.
Will I Need to Go to Trial to Get the Compensation I Deserve?
Although trial may be the best way to get the compensation you deserve for your case, it is possible that you might end up getting a settlement offer for your police brutality case. Not every settlement offer is fair, and some settlement offers might significantly lowball you in order to avoid a bigger payout. Having a police brutality attorney from our law firm on your side can help you determine what amount of compensation is fair when a settlement is offered.
How Can a Police Brutality Help Me Make Things Right?
While no amount of financial compensation can bring your deceased loved one back, getting compensation for the damages, including the pain and suffering done to you because of the death of your loved one can be the first major step towards recovery. On top of the financial compensation, now more than ever, it is important to hold renegade law enforcement accountable for their actions in order to prevent further cases of police brutality in the future.
