Police Misconduct Can Cause Physical And Emotional Damage
Most police officers uphold the public trust and act responsibly. However, in rare instances an officer may make a bad decision that has tragic consequences, causing a catastrophic injury or death.
At Wise Morrissey, LLC in Chicago, our experienced lawyers review cases involving allegations of excessive force, wrongful use of weapons and other civil rights violations in Illinois. It is not necessary that police misconduct caused physical injury. False arrest or wrongful imprisonment without probable cause can result in serious financial or emotional damage for any individual.
If we determine our clients have been victimized by police misconduct, we litigate not only to seek appropriate compensation, but also to act as a safeguard to ensure that the appropriate standards of police conduct are followed.

We represent people in police brutality and civil rights violation cases involving:
- Unnecessary force
- Wrongful use of Tasers or firearms

We will investigate the incident and determine the amount of compensation you are entitled to. You may be able to recover financial damages for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
