We Protect Victims of Police Misconduct Nationwide
The Chicago police misconduct lawyers at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm are currently evaluating potential police brutality and excessive force lawsuits for clients throughout the United States. We can travel to you. Most police officers conduct their duty with integrity, honor, and respect. However, there are some who abuse their authority and employ unnecessary force-injuring people in the process. Whether the assault was verbal or physical, police brutality is traumatizing and is one of the most damaging forms of misconduct.
Police brutality, at its foundation, is a violation of a person's constitutional rights. Police officers are intended to protect your rights while enforcing the law. When they abuse their power, they can be held liable in civil court for the damages they cause. If you or a loved one has been a victim of police brutality, contact Pintas & Mullins Law Firm.

Police Misconduct Lawsuits
Law enforcement agents are given the authority and power to make sure people obey the law and protect citizens from harm. Unfortunately, the police can overstep their authority and misuse their power in the pursuit of enforcing the law. Often, this takes the form of excessive and unnecessary force. When this force causes extensive physical injury, individuals and their loved ones are entitled to financial compensation through a misconduct claim.
Sometimes, the unnecessary use of firearms or tasers can result in someone's death. When this happens, either through intentional killing or negligence, the victim's family may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. Pursuing these claims ensures that police officers who abuse their power are held accountable for their actions in a court of law.
