    If you’re arrested in the UK, the police that deal with you will be duty-bound to do you no harm at all, assuming you do not resist arrest, and make sure that you’re safe from becoming involved in an accident that is not your fault while you’re in their custody. If any of the officers you deal with during the course of your arrest fail in this duty of care towards you there’s a chance you may be able to use the services of an injury lawyers to sue the police force in question for compensation.

    Regardless of the offence you’ve been arrested for, if you’ve been hurt while being mistreated by police officers or have come to harm as the result of health and safety issues relating to any vehicle you were transported in or while at a police station, you may have a case for compensation.

    Police claims and injury lawyers

    Although the majority of police officers are honest professionals who try their best while doing what most people would agree is an incredibly demanding job, there are those who do not always behave as they should. If a police officer has used unnecessary force against you that resulted in you being injured, you may have a case for a pay-out.

    You may also be able to make a personal injury claim against the police if you were hurt physically or psychologically from a wrongful arrest, the misuse of stop-and-search powers or if the police in any way violated your rights

    Getting the help you need

    If the country is to have a properly functioning police force, its staff and members must be fully accountable to the law. You may be able to launch criminal proceedings if you think a police officer you’ve dealt with may have acted illegally and if you’d like to pursue damages for a psychological or physical injury you’ve been caused by the police you’ll need to retain the services of a good personal injury solicitor.
