Sometimes the very people we trust with our safety, the police and other law enforcement officers, make mistakes or poor judgments that result in personal injury.
Aside from personal injury, there is a deep sense of injustice when an innocent person is sprayed with mace, shot with a Taser, bit by a police K-9, struck with a baton, or is otherwise treated like a criminal.
Norfolk civil rights and personal injury attorney Ed Atkinson will stand up for you
When police officers are grossly negligent or when they intentionally harm someone, the injured person will need a lawyer to fight for compensation in most cases. The legal issues are very complex, and the laws are designed to make it difficult for an injured person to represent him or herself against the police department or other agents of the state.
If a law enforcement officer has used excessive force on you or a loved one, you need an experienced Norfolk personal injury lawyer handling your claim.
