Legal Options for Police Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Reed Martins has years of trial experience defending victims of violent crimes and their families. In an interview, Martins shares some insight for victims of police shootings.

"Unfortunately, far too many Americans have fallen victim to police brutality and misconduct. If your personal injuries resulted from police misconduct, you have the right to pursue legal justice. Victims or their loved ones of a police shooting have the ability to file a lawsuit against the officer or police department."

"If a victim chooses to file a police shooting lawsuit against an officer or police department, they could receive financial compensation in the form of a court settlement or award for their physical and emotional trauma. The use of a firearm should be an officer's last resort and misuse of power can be punishable by law. If you or a loved one has suffered from a police shooting, you should hire an experienced attorney to determine your legal options."
