What if You Experience Police Brutality or Excessive Force

If an officer of the law denies you your constitutional rights or is physically aggressive with you, comply with their requests as best as possible. To protect yourself, request restraint and say nothing more. Do not be aggressive in response or give the officer any indication of non-cooperation, as it may be used against you should you decide to pursue legal action. Do your best to remain calm until the ordeal is over. As soon as you are able, contact our office. Traffic stops or any other forms of non-aggravated police contact do not generally warrant the use of physical force. However, in the instance of arrest, detention, or as the result of a pursuit, officers will often use excessive force to show dominance. This is illegal and should be reported. Additionally, if you are subject to racial profiling, sexual misconduct by an officer, or bodily harm, our office will provide you with your best legal solutions. If you or someone you know has been injured in a police brutality or excessive force case, contact the experienced New York police brutality and excessive force legal team at the Law Office of Stephen H. Frankel.
