Police Use of Force

Police play an important role in our society and we trust them to treat all citizens equally, with dignity and respect.

When required officers have the authority to use reasonable force. Prior to acting, an officer needs to consider many circumstances including the threat posed by an individual and to use only the amount of force necessary.

If a police officer abuses their position or inflicts unnecessary harm on citizens, the law requires that the officer and the force answer for their actions and compensate citizens who become victims of the very people sworn to protect them.

Our personal injury lawyers are experienced at helping victims of excessive force either by police, security services or others.

If you believe you or a loved one has been injured due to excess use of force by a police officer or other public authority, call us today at 416-256-1700.
