Law Enforcement Abuse
Law enforcement abuse is a hot topic these days after several instances that have made national news both nationally and in our own backyard here in Texas. From beatings to shootings of individuals, it has brought law enforcement to the court rooms with injured victims or their families demanding justice.
Reasons For A Law Enforcement Abuse Lawsuit
Law enforcement is automatically granted qualified immunity from lawsuits. This protects officers from having to worry about lawsuits when they are trying to do their job. It is believed to help them do their job more effectively. Although they are immune, they can be sued if it is shown that they willfully acted in an unreasonable manner. Reasons for a law enforcement abuse lawsuit include:
- False Arrest
- Excessive force
