In a world where safety is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, we rely on the members of our law enforcement community to protect us. We rely on them to protect our fundamental civil rights. Sometimes, however, the very people that are put in place to protect us are those that cause us physical and psychological injuries through wrongful convictions and police brutality.
Your most basic fundamental right is your freedom, and you can never get back the time you spent in prison. A wrongful conviction can destroy your reputation and your life, but a civil rights lawyer can help you pursue justice. We have the knowledge and expertise to make sure you are compensated when the government infringes on your fundamental liberties.
Another type of wrongdoing is police brutality. There are many forms, but generally it is when law enforcement uses excessive force, makes improper or illegal arrests, or falsely imprisons a person. If any of these things have happened to you, you may have a right to make claims against law enforcement.
Here at Benner & Boon, we have represented clients that have been injured through these means. We can work with you to help you understand your rights. As your advocates, we will review the evidence, speak with authorities, litigate aggressively, retain expert witnesses, and work with the courts to help you clear your name and pursue damages so you can move on with your life.
