Lawyers Seek Justice For Victims of Deadly Police Shootings

Attorney contributor Kristen Beightol is a police shooting lawyer in North Carolina. Kristen recently sat down with Legal Herald to discuss the legal rights available for surviving family members of victims fatally shot by police. 

"Police are allowed to use reasonable force to arrest, subdue, and detain suspects. However, we can still hold police officers accountable for abusing their power by using excessive force, wrongfully punishing suspects, and even taking a human life when unjustified. Victims of law enforcement abuse are protected by many laws. It may be a violation of the victim's civil rights if an officer uses deadly or excessive force. Even though the officer may have a reasonable suspicion that the suspect was armed and dangerous, an investigation will be necessary to determine if the actions were reasonable. "

"Family of those wrongfully shot by police can get the compensation they need by consulting with an experienced police shooting lawyer. The attorney will be able to determine if the victim's rights were violated and guide the family to get the justice they deserve. Police officers that use lethal force, excessive force, or harm people unlawfully should be held accountable for abusing their power."
