Oakland Police Brutality Lawyer
It's a police officer's job to protect and serve the citizens of the Bay Area. Police must only use force that is in direct relation to the situation in which they find themselves. Often, police misjudge the force necessary in the situation or intentionally use excessive force.
When a death is the result of police brutality, the negligent use of a firearm, the improper use of a Taser or a submission hold, the victim's family may have the right to bring a wrongful death case. Our law firm is skilled in pursuing damages in wrongful death cases involving the violation of the victim's civil rights.
Law enforcement can cause a wrongful death in many situations, including:
- Negligent use of firearms
- Excessive use of force or police brutality
- Deaths while in jail or police custody
- Improper use of Taser or other non-lethal weapon
