Police Brutality Cases in Texas
Seek Justice with a Houston Civil Rights Lawyer
In a perfect world, citizens of every community should be able to trust
the judgement and actions of law enforcement officials. Unfortunately,
local and national headlines often detail police brutality against citizens.
These behaviors are more prevalent than some would like to admit, but
when it does happen, the offending officers can be held accountable for
what they have done through court action.
Many people who have suffered painful and serious injuries caused by police
do not realize that they have the ability to challenge the brutality in
a lawsuit. Our team at The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. has made it our
mission to provide not only representation, but advocacy to clients hurt
by the officers sworn to protect them.
We have helped many clients recover significant results and are prepared to bring that level service to any
personal injury case, police brutality suits included.

The Many Forms of Police Brutality
The phrase "police brutality" usually conjures up ideas of beatings
and physicality. While many such cases are violent, police brutality is
not dependent solely on physical altercations. Any form of aggression
or inappropriate behavior that leads to physical harm or emotional trauma
can be considered brutality.
Some more common examples of police brutality include:
- Physical force (or excessive force)
- Sexual assault
- Implied violence or threats
- Unfounded field stops (profiling)
- False arrests or imprisonment
- Unlawful search or seizure

Oftentimes victims of police brutality feel that seeking legal action is
too costly or too hopeless, as it is against an institution as large as
a police department. At
our firm, we try to dispel that idea and hold any party accountable for negligence
and injury. When an officer has taken an oath to serve and protect the
community, it is crucial that they are held to that pledge, even if it
means we have to fight them in court.
