Police Misconduct and False Arrest
Farmington Hills Police Misconduct Lawyer
Do You Think the Police Have Mistreated You?
Police misconduct cases are notoriously difficult to prove. The police and other law enforcement agencies get a lot of leeway to use force or make mistakes in the course of fulfilling their public duty.
In serious cases of police misconduct, state and federal law give the victim ways to seek compensation and justice from the police force. Serious cases of police misconduct usually involve:
- Serious and unnecessary physical injury
- Serious and avoidable damage to a professional reputation
- Unreasonably long and unnecessary detention
Warning signs of police brutality or police misconduct include:
- Broken bones or serious bruises as a result of excessive force
- Major property damage resulting from a rough search
- Racial profiling
- Searches without probable cause

Schwartz, we know how to evaluate claims of police misconduct. We will give you our honest opinion about the strength of your police misconduct claim. If we believe your claim is strong, we will pursue compensation and justice on your behalf.

One of the most common forms of police misconduct is false arrest. False arrest occurs when police wrongfully arrest someone when they have no reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing. These cases often involve blatant abuse of Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.
Cases involving police brutality are less common. Unfortunately, they happen. These situations can involve misuse of Tasers or any instance of excessive force or misuse of firearms resulting in serious injury or wrongful death.
Police and civilians alike frown upon serious police misconduct. Victims of serious police misconduct have the right to pursue compensation for their injuries.
