Police officers are not immune to the law but they sometimes abuse their power. Beyond filing criminal charges, you can file a civil lawsuit against police departments and cities where officers apply the law inappropriately and have caused you personal injury or damage to your reputation. The Los Angeles Police Department and other California law enforcement departments are no strangers to police cover-ups, excessive force and brutality.
At JML Law, our Los Angeles Police misconduct attorneys take strong legal steps to protect victims and remind police officers of their duties to maintain composure, professionalism, and respect others. Our attorneys handle police misconduct cases throughout Los Angeles and Southern California. We are responsive and fully staffed to independently investigate your claim.
Pursuing Monetary Compensation For Injuries And Damages
Suing a municipality or the state is not a simple task. Strict statutes of limitations apply to these cases defense lawyers will need to be of the highest caliber. You deserve justice, and you should never have to suffer the consequences of being beaten, shot, assaulted, wrongfully arrested or imprisoned, unnecessarily.
In most cases unfortunately, the police control the evidence. Getting our hands on that evidence before it is tampered with or destroyed is critical to the success of your case. The defense will rely heavily on the type and amount of substantial evidence. It is imperative to present a good case to the judge or jury based on facts. Evidence will include medical reports related to your injuries. To delay seeking medical care or legal counsel is detrimental to your case.
If you cannot afford medical care, we will help you find a highly qualified doctor who will delay billing you until your civil case is settled. We offer our legal services on a contingency fee basis, which means we pay all legal costs prior to verdict or settlement. Only if we win on your behalf do we collect attorney fees.
We have over 35 years of experience advocating for injury victims in California. We will hold the police accountable for misconduct and brutality. We will prove liability and prosecute for your maximum compensation. Our police misconduct attorneys are some of the most experienced attorneys around.
