Cleveland Wrongful Police Shooting Attorneys
What Constitutes a Wrongful Police Shooting?
The law limits the circumstances under which a police officer may use deadly force, which is sometimes called “lethal force.”
Generally, law enforcement may only use lethal force in the following circumstances:
- To protect himself or herself from an imminent risk of death
- To protect others from an imminent risk of death or serious physical injury
- If the suspect has committed a felony demonstrating an indifference to life and limb
An officer's use of deadly force without justification amounts to excessive force in violation of the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Cleveland wrongful shooting attorneys at Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP thoroughly investigate police shootings throughout Ohio to determine if the use of deadly force may constitute a civil rights violation.
