Police compensation lawyers

Police

The police play an important role in keeping our society safe. They are granted special powers in order to protect us. The police are of course human and therefore prone to making mistakes like the rest of us. These mistakes can lead to people getting hurt and injured, or being wrongly arrested, when this happens the victim may be entitled to make a claim for compensation to help cover loss of income and suffering.

Claim compensation from the police

If you have been injured by the police or feel the police have abused their powers in detaining you, it may be possible to make a claim for compensation. Only accredited lawyers specialising in claims against the police are listed on this page.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
