Oklahoma Excessive Police Force Lawyer
The scene of an arrest can be chaotic. Suspects may have legitimate reasons to believe they should not be arrested, and police offers often worry about what a suspect may do during a pursuit or arrest.
However, there is never an excuse for law enforcement to use excessive and unwarranted force. Doing so violates the civil rights of victims and frequently results in severe physical injuries.
The Cotton Law Firm is a dedicated personal injury and civil rights law firm representing individuals throughout the state. With a record of success in both areas of law, we are well-equipped to handle cases where unlawful acts by the government result in serious or even life- changing injuries to our clients.
You or a loved one may have a claim for excessive force against a law enforcement agency if you were subjected to any of the following acts:
- Repeated beatings
- Overuse or unnecessary use of a police baton
- Overuse or unnecessary use of a Taser
- Inappropriate use of pepper spray
- Overuse or unnecessary use of a firearm
- Repeated acts of violence on a subdued suspect
In these cases, compensation may be available for your physical injuries, emotional distress and other losses. We will fight to hold police accountable for their actions and get you the compensation you deserve.
