Representation For Victims Of False Arrest
At Meirowitz & Wasserberg, we also handle cases involving victims of false arrest. Under the law, the police must have “probable cause” to arrest you. If they do not — and they arrest you anyway — you may be a victim of false arrest. False arrest is a violation of state and federal law, including the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
False arrest lawsuits are brought in civil court, and if you were injured during the arrest may also involve claims for personal injury. We can help you understand your situation and pursue all available courses of action to hold the police accountable for their actions.
