Policing The Police’s Use Of Excessive Force

New York’s law enforcement officers have a mission to protect and serve the public. Unfortunately, many civilians have experienced excessive force and other civil rights violations at the hands of New York’s police. If you are a victim of police brutality, reach out to our legal team at Konta Georges & Buza P.C.

We have helped others in similar situations recover compensation for medical expenses and other related expenses as a result of unnecessary police brutality. Let us help you.

What Makes A Successful Excessive Force Case?

The law allows cops to use only the amount of force appropriate to make an arrest or defend themselves. It forbids them from using more force than necessary. However, there is no precise definition of necessary force and excessive force. The court must consider every incident on a case-by-case basis. To win your case, you must demonstrate conclusively that the officers involved used more force than appropriate in their interaction with you.
