Madia Law Represents Victims of Police Brutality and Excessive Force in Minnesota and Wisconsin

If you answered “yes” to any either of the above questions, Madia Law can help. We represent victims of police brutality and excessive force in Minneapolis, St. Paul, the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, and across the State of Wisconsin.

Almost all police officers are brave and outstanding public servants who do their jobs with courage and conviction every single day – we owe all of them an enormous debt of gratitude. Sometimes, however, an officer may abuse his or her authority and hurt someone by using a taser, mace, or simply beating them. That’s not right. No matter how difficult the job, no person has the right to use excessive force on someone else. Our free society depends on courageous people stepping forward to protect their Constitutional rights when they have been violated.

If you were wrongfully arrested, beaten, tased, or maced, you should know that you are protected by federal law and the U.S. Constitution. The Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures, which includes excessive force. A federal law called 42 U.S.C. 1983 prohibits the violation of constitutional rights by people acting under color of law, such as police officers.

You May Be Entitled to Damages for Pain and Suffering, Emotional Distress, and Attorney Fees

If you have been the victim of police brutality, you may be entitled to damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, punitive damages, and your attorney fees and costs.
