Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Police Brutality Lawyer in Washington DCEven though many police officers are good upstanding citizens who perform their job duties to the best of their abilities and follow all protocols, the need for a good police brutality lawyer in Washington DC is on the rise. Police perform a difficult job that potentially puts them in harm’s way every time they show up for work. Many police officers have been injured or killed while trying to protect the public from dangerous individuals and situations. There can be a fine line between a police officer respecting an individual’s Constitutional rights and making sure that they are not putting themselves in harmful or dangerous situations. While many law enforcement officers perform their jobs admirably, there are some who ignore proper procedures and wind up injuring, or even killing, innocent victims with what is considered police brutality.

When police officers injure someone by using excessive or unnecessary force when trying to apprehend a suspect, the injured person may be entitled to compensation. If someone dies as the result of what is deemed police brutality, their surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for expenses that are related to the victims injuries and death, and for their pain and grieving. When dealing with questionable police behavior, many people find it beneficial to enlist the help of a personal injury law firm that is experienced in defending victims of police brutality.

Brutality

When dealing with dangerous suspects, police officers are allowed to use a certain amount of force when they make an arrest. This is allowed in order to bring them into custody without the risk of the suspect causing harm to other people (both the public at large and the police officers themselves).

According to the General Order-901-07 of the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department, police officers are supposed to try to diffuse all situations through non-violent means whenever possible. Police officers are supposed to evaluate a situation by using a scale of 1-5 where a 5 is considered to be a subject who is a serious threat for causing injury or death, and a 1 is when the subject is compliant and does not pose any violent threat. Unfortunately, there have been many situations when a suspect who is a 1, 2, or 3 is treated as a 4 or 5, and is injured as a result of this unfair and unnecessary police brutality.

Even though there are measures in place to prevent police brutality, it is all too common to hear from friends, community members and in the media, about egregious and unwarranted acts of violence by police officers towards innocent people.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
