Police Assault Claims


“I got justice and my lawyer secured a lump sum award from the police…”

We know that bringing a civil action against the police for excessive force is daunting for you. But you are absolutely within your rights to make a claim, and we’re here to make that process as easy as possible for you.

Understanding that for many, an acceptance of wrong doing and an apology is just as important as any compensation settlement – we’re here to make that happen.

Even if you were lawfully arrested, you may have a claim for compensation if the force used by the police was excessive.

Any physical force must be necessary, reasonable and proportionate. If a police officer is found to be using excessive force during the course of your arrest, then this may be considered an assault and you could recover compensation for your injuries.

Were you were wrongly arrested? Then you could have a claim for compensation for any use of handcuffs and any injury that arose because of that.

Some of our claims include:

  • Compensation for a broken wrist as a result of excessive force during restraint
  • Compensation for scarring during an unlawful takedown and subsequent injuries
  • Compensation for a bite injury from a police dog.
  • Compensation for unlawful use of taser.

It’s hard to know what to do if a police officer assaults you, but if you prove that the actions of the officers in question were disproportionate to the circumstances, it’s highly likely that together we can make a claim. This is even more likely if you have strong evidence such as video recordings of the incident or witness accounts.

Our friendly team are experts in their field and are ready to help you with your claim, so you can concentrate on moving on with your life, providing you with clear and honest advice.

You can trust us to work for you. But don’t take our word for it – take a look at our many successful claims. See just how good we are.
