The police officers in Las Vegas are entrusted with tremendous power.
It doesn’t take much for the Las Vegas police to cross the line and use excessive force on vulnerable victims.
Excessive force by police is not only humiliating but potentially life threatening.
The number of incidents in Las Vegas is much higher compared to the big cities such as Los Angeles and New York. The Federal Justice Department recently investigated the Las Vegas Metro Police because of the high number of claims of the use of excessive force.
The Las Vegas police have paid millions in recent years to settle excessive force claims. And it will only stop when more money is paid and more victims stand up for their rights.
Victims of excessive force deserve monetary compensation for their humiliation, physical injuries and emotional trauma.
The police can owe victims of excessive force money for a variety of reasons. These include:
If you think one or more of these reasons is why the police officers used force against you, then you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
