Wrongful Police Shootings

Wrongful Police Shootings

Police shootings are always a serious matter. When you or your loved one is involved in a wrongful police shooting, it’s critical to get experienced legal representation as soon as possible. Police shootings are legally and politically complex cases that are difficult to navigate and can often feel like an uphill battle. Our experienced civil rights lawyers and personal injury lawyers are here to aggressively fight for your rights and, where needed, your compensation. Contact Just Palmer Law Group today. 

Don’t fight alone.

Our experienced team of attorneys specializes in these kinds of cases and knows how important it is to have someone on your side. Being involved in a police shooting is difficult enough, we have the expertise and compassion you need to make bringing a case a little easier.

Police Bias and Shootings

Unfortunately, specific populations are more likely to be involved in a police shooting than others. People of color, people with mental and developmental disorders, and other marginalized groups are more likely to be involved in police shootings. In these situations, it's important to have legal representation who won't shy away from possible discrimination or bias in your case.

If you believe you or your loved one may have been discriminated against in a police-involved shooting, it’s essential to bring your case as soon as possible. That way we can work to collect evidence not only of the shooting but of any possible discrimination at the time.

Don’t let accounts of police bias hold you back. Discrimination in law enforcement is unacceptable, and by pursuing your police shooting suit, you can help eliminate discrimination from our law enforcement.

The Importance Of Evidence In Police Shootings

With new evidence of police shootings from body cams, personal cameras, surveillance video, and witness reports, there’s more to work with than ever before. If you were involved in a wrongful police shooting, chances are there is some evidence available to argue your case. It’s not a case of your word against the police anymore.

The abundance of evidence in many police shooting cases gives you a leg up in bringing your police shooting case. But there are still a lot of legal protections and limitations to navigate, which is why you need a qualified attorney guiding the case.

The police in this country have a lot of power and leverage when it comes to the use of force and how they handle an encounter. But more evidence and changing public perception and legal thought are making it more possible to get wrongful police shootings addressed in court.

Why Bring A Police Shooting Case?

Recent coverage of police shootings, and the court cases that follow, might make it seem more challenging to bring police shooting cases than it is. Don’t let yourself be discouraged by other cases. Only a qualified attorney can evaluate if you have a good case, and bringing your case to the courts may help create reform as well as justice in your specific case.

Police shooting cases often result in positive change, either from court-mandated changes or from department-initiated policy changes. Training and policy changes aren’t just signs that you’ve gotten justice for a wrongful police shooting; they also keep others safer and help prevent the same kind of shooting from happening again.

Bringing cases against wrongful police shootings is a critical part of making law enforcement better and more effective.

I Honor Police Officers. Should I Still Bring My Police Shooting Case?

Yes. If you feel that you or your loved one was involved in a wrongful police shooting you should always bring your case forward.

Knowing that police officers serve an essential role in society and that the majority of officers do a good job and use their power and authority responsibly doesn’t excuse officers who act wrongfully.

Prosecuting officers who behave irresponsibly, especially when they hurt or kill members of the public, keep the public safer and ultimately benefits responsible officers as well.

Police officers shoulder an incredible burden in keeping us safe. They also have an ongoing responsibility to serve and protect the public which must be respected.

It’s possible to honor police officers as a whole and still reject the harmful actions of individual officers. We can help.
