Our Chicago civil rights attorney can evaluate the evidence to determine whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit to hold the officer who attacked you accountable.
Come to Foutris Law Office, Ltd. to speak with an attorney who has over a decade of experience representing individuals who have suffered all types of police misconduct, and has obtained settlements for over 95% of his clients. He cares about his clients on a personal level, and will invest exhaustive preparation and aggressive litigation in the cause of asserting your rights to compensation.
Title 42, Section 1983 of the United States Code provides that anyone who violates an individual's civil rights while acting under color of law is liable to the victim for damages, and you may be able to use this legal protection to recover a settlement, as well as to secure the support of the judicial system in punishing the officer who brutalized you. Police officers are sworn to protect citizens, yet there are many cases of wanton cruelty and abuse against innocent victims. Even in an arrest, an officer is rigidly limited in the amount of duress that is acceptable, and use of excessive force or taser abuse is not allowed.
The victims of police brutality experience not only the pain and suffering of the beating and abuse, but also the emotional trauma and humiliation of being deprived of their human dignity. You deserve to be compensated for the actions of the officer who violated your rights, as well as for the complicity of any others whose failure to intervene allowed the attack to continue.
Contact a Chicago civil rights attorney for aggressive representation in a police brutality lawsuit to recover the settlement you deserve.
