Civil Rights

If you are a victim of police mistreatment, or if you lost a loved one due to the excessive use of lethal force, you may feel confused and afraid. After all, if you can't trust those who work for the justice system, who can you trust?

You can trust Jacobs, Schwalbe & Petruzzelli, P.C., in Cherry Hill. Our personal injury attorneys are ready and willing to stand up for you against any police department. We know the law, and we know how to aggressively defend your legal rights. Let us put our 40 years of experience on your side today. Although we are a New Jersey law firm, we can also handle cases in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Standing Up For You After All Types Of Wrongdoing

Our lawyers handle civil rights violations and police brutality cases involving:

  • Excessive force or violence, including beatings, assaults, shootings or Taser gun use
  • False arrest/arrest without probable cause
  • Improper search or seizure
  • Unlawful handcuffing or detention
  • Abuse by prison guards
  • Failure to provide necessary medical care
  • Due process violations
  • What Can A Lawsuit Do For You?

You may be wondering if it's even worthwhile to pursue a lawsuit. In many cases, it is. You may be entitled to significant compensation for the injuries and wrongs you have suffered. In some cases, you can even seek punitive damages, which is extra money that the wrongdoer is ordered to pay as a punishment.

Be aware: You may have only 90 days to file a claim against a police department or other public entity in New Jersey. Don't wait to consult our attorneys.
