Have you or someone you know suffered the tragic loss of a loved one due to a police officer’s bullet? Is someone you know recuperating in a hospital after the police mistook them for a criminal? Did a friend call the police or emergency medical team or fire department in their city, only to find that the rescuers became the attackers?
When police fire their weapons, they sometimes shoot too soon, too often, or too early.
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you absolutely must speak with a lawyer now to find out whether an excessive force (wrongful shooting) case exists.

How does Firearms Misuse happen?
When police fire their weapons, they sometimes shoot too soon, too often, or too early. The wrong person is shot. Malicious threats are made or violent actions are taken by over-zealous officers. Innocent people get injured. Citizens die. When police officers, FBI agents, ATF agents, or other government agents engage in a wrongful shooting, the injured person and their family is allowed to sue the state or federal agent and the employer of that officer who wrongfully shot them.
A woman sitting at home caring for her newborn hears a knock at the door. She opens the door. Police barge in. Her husband, asleep upstairs comes racing down to see what the commotion is all about. Bang. He is shot. He dies. The child is left fatherless, the woman becomes a widow. And all of that happens because the police react too fast, don’t take proper steps before using force, or are reckless in their duties. The suffering in these kinds of cases is extreme.
