Deadly or wrongful shooting LAWYERS | ROMANUCCI & BLANDIN
A person killed or severely injured during a wrongful police shooting is an all too familiar scenario. Ironically, an individual’s civil rights may be violated by officials acting in their capacity as peace officers. Sometimes police react too quickly and shoot an innocent person or use deadly force when it was not required. These cases often make headlines and can be complex because juries may be reluctant to rule against a police officer. It is important that victims or their families work with a law firm specializing in deadly and wrongful shooting lawsuits, with experience in this area of the law.

National experience and results in deadly or wrongful shooting matters
At Romanucci & Blandin, we approach a deadly or wrongful shooting claim as a way to provide monetary compensation and hold an individual or institution financially accountable and responsible for the physical and emotional and even economic damages that have occurred. In too many cases, encounters with law enforcement can end tragically. In some cases, the officer(s) involved in police deadly or wrongful shooting cases may face criminal charges, but with or without those charges, victims can move forward with civil litigation, in an effort to receive financial compensation for what happened.
Our law firm has a team of attorneys and staff who have many years of experience with deadly or wrongful shooting litigation. Our civil rights and police misconduct legal team includes partners who guide the process and share their deep knowledge of these types of lawsuits. Each client and each situation is different, and your claim is treated with great care and respect as the team investigates what happened and determines the best path to justice for you.
We know exactly what to do to litigate your deadly or wrongful shooting case. We will obtain all necessary background information on the officer or officers involved and, if appropriate understand the municipal or organizational history, training or patterns and practices that may have played a role. Holding municipalities accountable for their officers’ conduct under a 42 U.S.C. §1983 Monell claim is an important part of civil rights law, and an area our team knows very well. We find the records, interview witnesses, utilize police and medical experts and prepare thoroughly and meticulously for your case. Ultimately, our aim is to obtain the maximum compensation possible so that you and your loved ones can move on with your life.

The results we have achieved in deadly or wrongful shooting cases are a testament to our team’s fierce dedication to clients.
