Police & Jail Misconduct

Police brutality and Jail Misconduct

Charlotte Police Misconduct Lawyers

If you feel that you were injured at the hands of law enforcement — by police misconduct or negligence of jail or prison staff — there is something you should know up front: police, corrections officers and other law enforcement personnel often have a qualified immunity against being sued for damages in a personal injury claim.

This means that holding police officers and jail employees responsible for misconduct can difficult. We approach these cases realistically and avoid making empty promises. We focus our efforts on providing smart and realistic legal advice and aggressive representation to victims of violence, catastrophic injury or wrongful death due to extreme police misconduct and outrageous jail or prison negligence.

Hefferon & Hefferon · North Carolina Attorneys Handling Law Enforcement Misconduct · (704) 243-9444

We have represented clients who have suffered as a result of a variety of egregious acts of police misconduct and negligence, including:

  • Improperly monitored suicide watch where an individual attempted to hang himself with a belt and suffered life-altering brain injury
  • Assault, sexual assault and other crimes committed by law enforcement or correctional officers

Just because your loved one was arrested and incarcerated does not give police and corrections officers the right to mistreat them or violate their rights. At Hefferon & Hefferon we will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable for their criminal or negligent misconduct in cases of serious injury or wrongful death.
