Why did the death occur?
Unlike other wrongful death claims that can single out a citizen or a private
company for negligence, civil rights suits target the very institutions
whose responsibility is to keep us safe. When the actions of a police
officer or a prison guard (or staff) lead to the death of a citizen, suspect,
or inmate, a civil right has been violated and legal action is called for.
Wrongful death claims on these grounds can occur when:
- Police officers use lethal force when it was not called for
- Police officers use excessive force
- Law enforcement's response to a crisis puts others in danger
- Prison management fails to provide medical treatment to an inmate
- Prison guards use excessive force
- Prison management participates in inhumane or negligent practices
- Retaliation by police officers or corrections officers
If you believe that these circumstances contributed to the death of your
loved one, then our firm is ready to hear from you. Nothing can take back
the pain and loss associated with the death of a victim, but the gravity
of these avoidable tragedies can be compellingly put forth before our
courts. Our team is prepared to do this on your family's behalf and
ensure that the memory of your loved one receives every consideration
