Claims Against The Police

The police can make mistakes, get things wrong or behave inappropriately. We are here to help. We have been involved in some of the regions most high profile cases against the police.

As one of the North of England’s leading firms in this field we deal with all areas of police malpractice. This can include complaints to the Police and to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), Civil Claims Against the Police and Inquests relating to Deaths in Police Custody.

If you believe you have a claim against the police then you may be entitled to sue the police for compensation for the injuries and losses that you have suffered. We are experts in dealing with Actions Against the Police and specialise in this complex area of law.

Our team has over 20 years experience of dealing with Claims Against the Police. We are one of the leading firms in this field and one of the few firms authorised to provide this service by the Legal Services Commission.

If you believe that you have been the victim of police misconduct then you may be able to bring a claim against the police. It is important to act quickly as there are various time limits when dealing with complaints and claims.

You can sue the police for certain ‘causes of action’ such as:

  • Assault or Excessive Use of Force
  • False Imprisonment
  • Wrongful Arrest
  • Malicious Prosecution
  • Trespass to Your Property
  • Death in Custody
  • Trespass to Goods
  • Negligence
  • Misfeasance in Public Office
  • Breaches of Human Rights

This area of law also covers sexual/physical abuse in care homes and claims against public authorities. We have experience in dealing with these particularly sensitive cases.

Legal Aid is available in some cases and we are one of the few firms franchised by the Legal Services Commission to pursue claims against the police with public funding. In some instances a 'no win no fee' agreement can be agreed. Please visit us for a free consultation to discuss your case.
