When police violate your Constitutional rights by engaging in brutality, shootings or other forms of excessive force, you have the right to seek compensation under federal civil rights laws and state laws. Incidents of excessive force and deadly force used by Chicago Police Department officers and police officers in the Greater Chicago area are astonishingly high.
The Chicago Police Department has a very checkered past with higher than national average complaints, an abysmal record of punishing abusive officers and a general lack of accountability.
As premier police brutality attorneys in Chicago and nationally renowned plaintiffs' attorneys, we have a very successful record prosecuting cases against abusive officers and departments involving complaints such as:
- Inappropriate use of deadly force, including police shootings and beatings
- Misuse of Tasers and excessive force
- Sexual assault
- Coerced confessions
- Unlawful searches and seizures
- False arrest and wrongful convictions
- Other federal civil rights violations such as racial profiling and other forms of discrimination
