Compensation for Unjustified Police Shootings

Attorney Kristen Beightol defends the surviving families of wrongful death victims in civil lawsuits across the state of North Carolina. During a recent interview, Kristen discussed some legal options available for unjustified police shootings victims' families. 

"Police officers and deputies take an oath to protect and serve the community. This legal duty means they must make decisions in order to protect themselves and others from harm. However, the shooting of a firearm should be an officer's last resort, and any unjustified use of deadly force should be punished by law. Victims may be able to file an unjustified police shootings lawsuit if they've been seriously injured by the police without just cause."

"In the event that a deputy or police officer uses excessive force, police shooting victims or their families may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the police department. If the police officer or department is found to have acted against law enforcement policies, this lawsuit may even lead to financial compensation. After any police-involved shooting, victims or their families can learn more about their legal options by consulting with an experienced police shooting lawyer."
