Lawyers for Police Shooting Victims
Were you shot by a police officer? Did you lose a close loved one in a police shooting? Police officers are meant to serve and protect. At times, however, they may take things too far. If you or a loved one was the victim of a police shooting, you need to work with an attorney who can help you seek justice.
At Acosta Law Group, we are not your typical civil rights attorneys. We do not handle personal injury cases; we are criminal defense attorneys. With more than 40 years of experience handling criminal defense cases, we know how to investigate your case and hold law enforcement accountable for police brutality, excessive force or unlawful search and seizures.
Proving the Police Went Too Far
Police officers may shoot an armed assailant if he or she is threatening the health and safety of others. For example, a police officer may shoot a person who is pointing a gun at another person. Sometimes police take this too far, shooting first and asking questions later.
In these situations, it is vital to find evidence to show that the police officer crossed the line. Our attorneys work diligently to investigate the circumstances that led to your injuries. We collect witness statements, physical evidence, video footage and other key evidence to demonstrate that the police shooting was an excessive use of force by law enforcement. Our lawyers will leverage every resource to help you seek justice after a police shooting.
