Police Shooting(s) Attorneys – Chicago, IL
Police are bound by strict rules when it comes to using force or weapons on civilians. If they breach their limits, you can sue them in the court of law. Police shootings are a largely restricted activity and the police are not allowed to shoot except in certain situations.
For instance, police can shoot if the person being arrested puts the life of other people at risk at the site of arrest. They can use their weapon if the suspect threatens to injure or shoot at them. But barring a few situations, the police are required to exercise a lot of caution in the way they use their weapon. If the police shoot in any situation other than a few permitted ones, they can be sued. At the Law Office of Robert Kerr, LLC, we defend people who have been injured unduly in police shootouts.
