We Take Difficult Cases … HEAD ON

The insurance company has a legal team to save them money after YOU have an accident. They would rather pay their lawyers than pay you fairly for your injury claim.

And quite frankly, that pisses us off.

San Diego Civil Rights Attorney

Whether it Be Wrongful Arrest, Police Misconduct, or Malicious Prosecution, Let Us Represent Your Rights!

We want to hear from you immediately if you or a family member has experienced police wrongdoing. Citizens tend to feel helpless in the face of a formidable police officer.

We value your rights, and in our quest for justice, we stand by you throughout each stage of the procedure and in all facets of your case. You shouldn’t have to deal with the fallout from law enforcement officers going beyond what is permitted. 

Our intention at DP Injury Attorneys in San Diego is to assist you in becoming aware of your legal choices should your rights be violated through false arrest, discrimination under California law, wrongful death of a loved one, or other civil rights cases. With a San Diego civil rights attorney at your side, you can file a lawsuit to help restore your reputation, safeguard your rights, and recoup any losses you may have sustained during this trying time.

Police Misconduct and Brutality Attorney in San Diego, CA

Most of us believe police officers in uniform are dedicated to upholding the law, maintaining community harmony, and keeping us safe. However, we frequently read about police brutality instances in the US in which law enforcement personnel harm or murder innocent individuals. 

There are numerous occasions in which police officers overstep the bounds of their jurisdiction and misuse their power to enforce the law, even though they are granted a lot of power and jurisdiction to safeguard the general public and ensure that individuals respect the law. According to Police Scorecard, 17% of the 794 civil complaints alleging police misconduct between 2016 and 21 were upheld.

This is an incredibly sensitive and technical area of law. Your best bet is to have a San Diego civil rights attorney act on your behalf. The proof required is considerable. You must demonstrate that the officer’s actions infringed your constitutional rights irrespective of his intentions and that they were both deliberate and unreasonable. The court will decide whether an officer used more force than was required in the given situation.

To prove that the officer acted maliciously and arbitrarily, you must provide evidence that: 

  • The police officer went beyond what was reasonable 
  • The officer’s unjustified actions infringed on your constitutional rights 
  • The officer’s actions caused your injury.

To represent you in your case, you should contact a San Diego civil rights lawyer immediately.

Your San Diego Wrongful Arrest Attorney 

San Diego civil rights lawyers can help you if you’ve been falsely accused of a crime. Whether you’ve been wrongfully charged or arrested, we’ll provide you with the information and defense you need to present your case successfully. 

According to Police Scorecard, regarding the 133 recorded complaints of police discrimination, 4% were ruled in favor of civilians. Wrongful arrest claims are filed in civil court and are seldom straightforward. If the police can demonstrate that they had any reason to suspect you were involved in a crime, even where the charges against you are dropped, or you are found not guilty, you might not have a case. Additionally, as long as the behavior was appropriate given the circumstances, officers are not subject to punishment for actions taken while acting in the course of their duties. 

However, suppose your San Diego civil rights attorney can demonstrate the arrest was arbitrary, intentional, discriminatory, or the product of racial discrimination. In that case, you might be able to get compensation for losses. Finally, an experienced civil rights attorney can help you retain an unblemished record by fighting for your rights. 

Malicious Prosecution Cases in San Diego, CA

A police officer who has overstepped their bounds and brought charges against anyone without a reasonable basis to injure, harass, or humiliate that person can be made the subject of a malicious prosecution suit. 

Having your life turned upside down by a police officer who is wrongfully abusing his authority may be a terrifying experience. However, you do have options. You can bring a civil lawsuit against the officer to seek financial compensation for the harm done to your reputation, finances, mental health, and other aspects of your life resulting from the unjust prosecution.

Your San Diego malicious prosecution attorney will have to demonstrate the following to prove a claim of malicious prosecution against a police officer: 

  • The case was prosecuted without a solid basis  
  • The prosecution was launched against you with the intent to injure, harass, or otherwise humiliate you or for a different nefarious reason other than to bring you to justice for an alleged crime
  • A jury dismissed the case, the court dismissed the charges, or the defendant was found not guilty.
