Results for Victims of Police Brutality
Led by attorney Gene Riddle, our police brutality lawyers have been fighting to hold authorities accountable since 1985. We are proud to serve clients in Winston-Salem and the greater Piedmont Triad and would love to help you if we can.
We proud of the service we provide and are humbled by the words our clients use to describe their experience working with our injury attorneys and staff:
- “I would recommend them to anyone. They fought hard for me.” -Christine W.
- “They handled my case very professionally, with respect from beginning to end.” -Joseph W.
- “They made a hard time in my life easier to endure.” -Melissa C.
Of course, client testimonials are just one measure of our success. We’re also proud of the results we’ve obtained for victims of police brutality, including a $5,000,000 judgment on behalf of female inmates who were sexually assaulted by a Wayne County sheriff’s deputy (see disclaimer below).
In that particular case, attorney Riddle successfully argued that our clients’ Constitutional rights protecting them from cruel and unusual punishment had been violated.
“We’re proud to represent North Carolinians in seeking to hold law enforcement authorities accountable for any violations of Constitutional rights.”

In general, behaviors constituting police brutality are protected against by the Constitution’s Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendments:
Fourth Amendment — This amendment guarantees one’s protection from unreasonable search and seizure. In general, a court-issued warrant must be obtained for searches and seizures, and law enforcement officers conducting spontaneous searches while on patrol must have probable cause that a crime has been committed.
Fifth Amendment — The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution contains a due process clause and protects individuals from self-incrimination. As a result of the Fifth Amendment, those under arrest have the “right to remain silent.” If these so-called Miranda rights are not read to a subject under arrest, a case can be made that the individual’s Constitutional rights have been violated.
Eighth Amendment — The Eighth Amendment protects people from “cruel and unusual punishment.” This may apply in cases where unreasonable force is used against someone in custody, or a law enforcement officer physically or sexually assaults an inmate, among other situations.
Fourteenth Amendment — This amendment guarantees that no one can be denied “life, liberty, or property” without due process of law. This protection can apply in cases where potentially excessive police force results in death, or medical care is denied by a law enforcement officer, among other scenarios.
