Police brutality is more than just a sad occurrence that shames law-abiding police officers and hurts victims, it is a violation of the basic rights secured by the United States Constitution for regular citizens and for convicted criminals. The Civil Rights Act of 1871 says that people who have had their Constitutional rights violated may sue the violator in a state or federal court. This includes victims of police brutality, whether or not they have been convicted of a crime. A person who has suffered from police brutality, no matter the form of brutality inflicted, has the right to recover damages for personal injuries and the violation of his or her civil rights in a court of law.

There are plenty of decent, hardworking, honorable police officers in the state of Illinois, but there are also some bad ones. Police officers who do not uphold the law should be held accountable for their actions. This is where the Chicago personal injury lawyers at Malman Law comes in.
