ColoradoExcessive Force Lawyers in Colorado

Excessive force is generally defined as force used by a law enforcement officer that is beyond what a reasonable and prudent law enforcement officer would use under the circumstances.

Excessive force or police brutality claims can involve injuries sustained after the police officer used a choke hold, taser, baton, or firearm. The person injured by the excessive force may have both a personal injury claim and a civil rights claim.

Additionally, if the individual was charged with a crime, the individual may have a criminal case pending as well. In many cases, the criminal charges must be resolved before a civil rights claim can be initiated.

Contact an attorney for excessive force cases in Colorado to discuss the particular facts of your case.
