Victims of unnecessary police violence, or police brutality, deserve justice. Depending upon the circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries sustained as a victim of police brutality. Roberts Markland, LLP specializes in these police brutality cases, sometimes called “Section 1983” cases. A Section 1983 case allows you to, depending upon the facts, either sue the officers who hurt you individually, sue the governmental entity for whom they worked, or both. Depending upon the facts, the government and the officers may be entitled to something called “qualified immunity,” which prevents lawsuits against them. This is why it is very important to speak to a qualified Houston police brutality lawyer about your possible case. If you believe you have a police brutality case and/or personal injury lawsuit involving police brutality in the Houston area, call Roberts Markland, LLP for a free case review with one of our experienced attorneys.
