The Chicago Independent Police Review Authority reports that in 2010, there were 46 police shootings in our city, 13 of which were fatal. If you or a loved one has been the victim of an unlawful shooting incident, you can find help in pursuing your rights to compensation by contacting a Chicago civil rights attorney as soon as possible.
Proving fault in this type of case is often difficult, as the police officer will typically allege that the shooting was somehow provoked. As a Chicago police brutality firm, Foutris Law Office can investigate the police report, witness testimony, surveillance footage and other evidence, and other factors. It may be possible to recover a settlement and to hold the police officer accountable for their actions.
Foutris Law Office proudly has the following credentials:
The attorney has personal experience with police misconduct, having been held at gunpoint by Chicago police officers as a teenager for being in the "wrong neighborhood". He knows how frustrating it can be to face corruption and abuse from those who have sworn to protect and serve. The firm has an excellent track record of success, obtaining compensation for more than 95% of clients, often in high-profile litigation against a team of city defense attorneys.
Before advocating for plaintiffs, the firm represented officers who were charged with police brutality and various due process violations. This experience provides the founding attorney with insight into how police do business, how they justify allegations of unlawful shooting and how to investigate for evidence of their wrongdoing. Use of firearms is only justified in extreme situations, and it may be possible to prove that you were the victim of excessive force. Call the firm today for a consultation and to learn more about the help that is available.
