Most of these cases involve challenges to police action such as false arrest and excessive force during an arrest that has caused injury. In a false arrest case it is very important to win the criminal case first, since a conviction (this would include paying a fine) means that the arrest was legal. If you were legally arrested and suffered injuries as a result of the arrest, there is usually no legal case to bring. It is only when the police use excessive and unnecessary force such as beating, kicking or hitting someone who has already been subdued or handcuffed where an excessive force case can be brought. If you are the victim of excessive force, be sure to defend your criminal case. Also bring all medical reports, medical bills and photographs of your injuries to your meeting here at the office.
