What qualifies as police brutality?
You may have a claim for a potential police brutality lawsuit in Fayetteville if you’ve suffered a violation of your rights under the U.S. Constitution.
You have a right to protection from police brutality as guaranteed by the Fourth and Eighth Amendments:
The Fourth Amendment — This amendment specifically protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures, including everything from searches for drugs or weapons during traffic stops, to more intrusive searches of your home or other property.
The Eighth Amendment — This amendment protects citizens from “cruel and unusual punishment.” It has been interpreted by the Supreme Court to be applicable in many cases. Your right to protection from cruel and unusual punishment includes:
- Protection from the use of excessive force by police and other law enforcement officers
- Protection from physical assault by law enforcement officers, whether in custody or not
- Protection from the denial of medical care while in police custody
- Protection from sexual abuse or assault while in custody
In addition to the Fourth and Eighth Amendments, the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments guarantee your right to “due process” under the law.
When police brutality or misconduct interferes with your right to due process, you may consider hiring a Fayetteville police brutality lawyer to handle a potential lawsuit.
There are many other instances of potential police brutality that are unconstitutional. A Fayetteville police brutality lawyer can evaluate your claim and help determine your best legal options for pursuing a potential lawsuit.
“Justice Counts for all North Carolinians, no matter what.”
–Gene Riddle, attorney and managing partner, Riddle & Brantley
Justice for ALL North Carolinians
At Riddle & Brantley, our firm was founded on the principle that Justice Counts for ALL North Carolinians, no matter what.
We’ve been seeking to hold North Carolina law enforcement accountable for decades.
In one recent case, attorney Gene Riddle successfully represented several women who were sexually assaulted by a sheriff’s deputy in Wayne County. Arguing that the deputy’s actions violated our clients’ Constitutional rights, attorney Riddle secured a verdict awarding $5 million in total damages (see disclaimer below).
