If you or a loved one has been the victim of excessive force, you should consider seeking counsel experienced in handling such cases.  The attorneys at Budge & Heipt have successfully pursued excessive force claims involving wrongful shootings, restraint-related asphyxia, the use of “less lethal” force (such as beanbags, batons, and chemical spray) and various other kinds of force leading to serious injury or death.

If a loved one has died in jail, and you suspect that alcohol or drug withdrawal may be involved, please contact our offices for a free consultation.  When such deaths take place, they must be investigated to determine whether it appears a constitutional violation has occurred.  Gathering relevant governing documents is part of the investigative process.  By seeking justice in individual cases, the system as a whole can be improved, and the risk of future similar deaths can be reduced.

If there is any question about whether a certain kind or amount of force is unconstitutional, the attorney for the excessive force victim should be prepared to thoroughly research the case law in order to overcome the defense.  A healthy understanding of qualified immunity and a willingness to spend long hours researching prior cases for favorable rulings can be critical to overcoming the defense.
 
If you or a loved one was a victim of excessive force resulting in death of serious injuries, please contact Budge & Heipt to discuss your case.  There is no cost or obligation to do so.

It is important to remember that each case is different. There is no “one size fits all” strategy for any particular case, and what may be unimportant in one case may be critical in another.  The question of municipal liability is no exception.

If you have a case involving wrongful death or serious injuries from excessive force, consider contacting the lawyers at Budge & Heipt for a free consultation. There is no cost or obligation to do so.
