We Do Not Tolerate Police Violence

Police brutality is intolerable in a civilized society. Not only does it do real, tangible violence to vulnerable civilians, it violates the trust of the governed and undermines the authority of law enforcement, eroding the confidence necessary for a peaceful and productive society.

At Kulis Law, we believe in the power of civil lawsuits to compensate victims, punish abusive officers, reform police procedures and deter future acts of brutality.

Have You Been The Victim Of Police Brutality?

Police brutality is any application of force that is excessive under the circumstances. Generally speaking, government authority is limited by the amendments found in the Bill of Rights, so any police act that violates a citizen's constitutional rights is misconduct.

Our attorneys provide aggressive and efficient representation to citizens who have suffered at the hands of misguided, ill-trained or simply hot-headed officers who overstep their authority and commit such abusive acts as:

  • Assault and battery
  • Coerced confession
  • Inhumane treatment of prisoners
  • Non-lethal weapon abuse (pepper spray and/or Tasers)
  • Police dog bites
  • Sexual abuse
  • Wrongful death
  • Use of excessive/deadly force (police shootings)

Remedies to police brutality and misconduct include:

Compensatory damages — money to compensate a victim for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc., as a result of abuse

Punitive damages — money taken from the offender (and given to the victim) to punish for the offense and to deter similar conduct in the future

Injunctive relief — a court order to discontinue the offending behavior; for instance, if a police officer used pepper spray under circumstances which the court deemed excessive force, the court might enjoin the police department to write that restriction into their training manual for officers
