Law enforcement officials have a duty to protect society and enforce the law.  The public rely on these law enforcement officials and place their confidence in them to act appropriately, and most officers uphold that trust.  However, in very rare instances, an officer may go too far, use too much force or make a bad decision that has tragic consequences.

The attorneys at Stuart N. Kaplan, P.A. are uniquely capable of investigating these situations and determining whether law enforcement officials utilized excessive force or made an unlawful arrest. As a result of our prior law enforcement experience as well as our courtroom experience handling these cases, our attorneys are ready and able to file lawsuits against police departments throughout the United States when a catastrophic injury or death is caused by unnecessary force, assault or a wrongful police shooting.

Our attorneys handle cases involving:

  • Excessive Use of Force or Police Brutality
  • Inappropriate or Excessive Use of a Taser Gun
  • Wrongful Police Shooting
  • False Arrest
  • Other Police Negligence

Excessive Force/Wrongful Arrest lawsuits not only seek to obtain compensation for the victim, but also act as an important safeguard in our society to ensure that the appropriate standards for use of force and lawful arrests are followed.
