Oregon Police Misconduct Attorneys

Our Oregon civil rights attorneys primarily focus on three types of police misconduct cases – excessive force, denial of medical treatment, and wrongful death.
The United States and Oregon have established basic human rights protections for our citizens. For instance, no one in our society can be denied access to essential medical care while in jail or prison. Another protection we have is that no one in our society may be subjected to excessive force. These types of protections ensure our safety and prevent violations of basic human rights.
When someone working on behalf of a municipal, statewide, or federal entity violates any of these basic rights, they are responsible for the harm they cause. Our Oregon civil rights attorneys pursue excessive force, denial of medical treatment, and wrongful death claims using both federal and Oregon laws.
If you have an Oregon civil rights case, is it important to preserve as much information and evidence as possible. Reconstructing shooting scenes, interviewing witnesses, and obtaining videos and documents can become increasingly difficult as time passes. The sooner you have an Oregon civil rights lawyer investigating the case, the better. Moreover, federal and Oregon claims have time-sensitive deadlines that must be complied with. If these deadlines are not complied with, your excessive force, police brutality, denial of medical treatment, or wrongful death claim may be lost forever. It is important to speak an attorney about these time deadlines to ensure they are met.
