FALSE ARREST ATTORNEYS | ROMANUCCI & BLANDIN
If a police officer has arrested you falsely and has deprived you of your freedom without sufficient reason to do so, the officer responsible or the police department can be held responsible. Some people believe they can only take action if they have been physically assaulted by a police officer in order to get compensation, but action can also be taken by hiring a personal injury attorney to help you with your false arrest case.
Your false arrest claim
With headquarters in Chicago, the false arrest attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know the damage and devastation that can be caused when someone’s constitutional rights are violated by those who are supposed to protect and serve. Our team has experience and success bringing justice to clients in some of the country’s most prolific cases, including being on the legal team representing the family of George Floyd. The attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know how to navigate these sensitive and often high-profile cases and bring justice to those involved.
National experience and results in false arrest matters
At Romanucci & Blandin, we approach a false arrest 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 false arrest 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 civil rights and police misconduct 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 false arrest 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.
