Use of Excessive Force by Police

During the course of an arrest, a police officer may overstep the bounds of acceptable behavior and use excessive force.

Generally, excessive force is considered anything beyond what is reasonably necessary to arrest someone. While tasers and batons are tools law enforcement may use during the course of an arrest, officers must have sufficient reason to use their weapons, such as if an individual is resisting arrest or poses a threat to officers or the public.Police Excessive Force

Since there is no specific definition of what constitutes use of excessive force by a police officer and there is a tight statute of limitations to file a claim, it is important to contact an attorney to investigate the circumstances of your arrest as soon as possible.
