Cooney & Conway has proven experience with police misconduct cases. We are experienced in defending victims of police brutality and civilians who fall victim to civil rights violations at the hands of the police.
The news is flooded with instances of civilians being severely injured or even killed during interactions with the police. Referred to as police misconduct, these situations can occur with both on and off-duty officers. Bystanders can be injured or killed by errant bullets, reckless driving of police automobiles, or police brutality or use of excessive force. Police officers work under pressure, and if they react too quickly or are careless or reckless in their conduct, in many cases they can be held liable for their actions.
