CIVIL RIGHTS

False Arrest:

If police officers have made false allegations against you and your criminal case has been dismissed or Adjourned in Contemplation of Dismissal (“ACD”), or you were released from custody without being charged, Richard Cardinale can help you seek compensation for your injuries, including your unjust incarceration and emotional distress.

 

Excessive Force:

If the police use force on you for no reason, or use more force than is necessary, Richard Cardinale will help you seek compensation for your physical injuries, emotional distress, medical expenses and other damages. If you are the victim of excessive force, it is important that you photograph your injuries and obtain prompt medical treatment if necessary.

 

Malicious Prosecution:

Malicious prosecution lawsuits may be brought when police officers make false allegations against you and file bogus criminal charges against you with the District Attorney’s Office. If the criminal case was dismissed by a judge, the prosecution, a grand jury, or you were found not guilty after a trial, Richard Cardinale will help you seek compensation for your injuries, including your unlawful incarceration, emotional distress, financial loss and damage to your reputation.

Other Types of Police Misconduct and Brutality:

If the police strip search you for no reason, deny you medical treatment or necessary medication, retaliate against you for exercising your right to free speech, or violate your civil rights in other ways, Richard Cardinale will help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
