Civil Rights Cases

Civil Rights Cases

As an American, you have certain civil rights that cannot be infringed upon by any person, government agency, employer, or institution. That includes law enforcement. Police officers train to handle high tension situations. They are legally allowed to use force to detain a suspect or gain control of a situation. Unfortunately, sometimes things get out of control.

If you are the victim of excessive or unnecessary force by a police officer, contact Lipeles Law Group to find out how we can help you. We help clients with cases involving police brutality and use of excessive force.

Excessive Use of Force Attorneys

Excessive or unnecessary force can arise out of a variety of situations. Some examples of these cases in California include:

  • An arrest attempt that ends in conflict
  • A routine traffic stop that gets out of control
  • An officer or team commits racial profiling
  • Interactions between inmates and staff are heated
  • A police officer is not adequately trained in when or how to use force
  • A police officer sexually assaults a citizen

At Lipeles Law Group, we can help you protect your rights. If you are the victim of these or other examples of excessive use of force, call us today.

Have You Been Bitten by a Police Dog?

Police dogs are incredibly smart, fast, and strong. They are trained to aid officers in searches, rescues, and takedowns. Unfortunately, police dogs sometimes get out of control. They can also target the wrong person and end up attacking an innocent bystander instead of a suspect.


Police dog attacks are incredibly traumatic. Victims often experience physical injuries and deep mental turmoil. Depending on the extent of the injuries, victims may experience a lifetime of medical care, permanent damage, and scarring. Police dog attacks often result in:

  • Disfigurement
  • Brain damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis

Severe police dog attacks can even be fatal.
