Excessive force is the use of force by a police officer that is disproportionate to what a reasonable police officer would use under similar circumstances. A person who has been a victim of excessive force may have a viable claim against the arresting officer. However, he or she will need video footage to prove the case. Victims of excessive force are entitled to monetary damages to compensate them for the injuries they have suffered. If you or a loved one has been physically hurt due to the excessive use of force by a police officer, we can help you seek justice. Call 201-420-1913.
