Should I organize a protest or file a police brutality lawsuit if a law enforcement officer hurts me?

In 2020, many Americans took to the streets to protest police brutality. These types of protests are not new. From the civil rights movement of the 1960s until today, people have protested police brutality in various cities throughout the country, including here in Wisconsin.

Protests Raise Awareness

Protests are important. They make the news and raise awareness. The hope is that peaceful protests result in systemic changes that make society safer.

If you or a loved one were the victim of police brutality, then a protest may help you feel supported by your community and may encourage changes that prevent other people from being victims of police brutality.

A protest will not, however, result in financial compensation for your injuries.

Lawsuits Benefit Police Brutality Victims

If you suffered injuries after a police officer’s use of excessive force, then you likely have financial damages. For example, you may have past and future medical expenses, lost income, physical pain, emotional suffering, and other costs or losses.

When a police officer violates the law by using excessive force, and you are hurt as a result, you deserve to make a fair recovery.
