New York Police Misconduct
and Civil Rights Lawyer

NY City Law Enforcement Misconduct and Civil Rights Attorney

Police Brutality • False Arrest • Excessive Force

For the most part, the people who serve our communities as police officers, sheriffs, prison officials and other law enforcement agents respect the rights of citizens. Unfortunately, just as in any line of work, there are those who abuse their authority by physically and emotionally harming the citizens they are supposed to protect. Fortunately, the law provides a remedy for the injuries handed out by offending officers.

As one of a handful of law firms in New York City representing victims of police misconduct, The Law Office of Estelle Roond has extensive experience helping victims of:

  • Police Brutality and Prison Guard Abuse
  • False Arrest
  • Other types of police misconduct and civil rights abuses

Many complaints of police misconduct are ignored. They are frequently brushed off as if the person must be lying or somehow deserves his or her fate by having been involved with the police in the first place. Sadly, many of the victims of police misconduct have not committed any crime. In fact, many reports of brutality do not even involve people who were arrested. And even if an arrest is legal, the use of excessive force is not.

If you are a victim of police misconduct, it's important to contact a lawyer immediately. You may only have ninety days to file an action against the police department.

Jail and Prison Injuries

While sheriffs and prison wardens cannot be made guarantors of an inmate's personal safety, that does not excuse conduct that results in injuries from:

  • Negligent conditions (slip-and-falls, etc.)
  • Bus accidents while being transported or others types of accidents
  • Inmate-on-inmate violence (if prison staff could have foreseen it and failed to prevent it)
  • Jailhouse and prison guards participating in beatings
  • Denial of proper medical attention to inmates in obvious need
  • Ignoring credible information anticipating threats to an inmate's safety.

Jails and prisons exist to house those suspected of crimes that are awaiting trial and those that have been convicted of crimes while they are serving out their sentences. While nothing requires these facilities to offer exquisite accommodations, our Constitution prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. This requires that prisons not be dangerous places that pose undue risks to personal health and safety.

Personal injury lawsuits can be can be brought as state and federal claims, including actions under 1983 of the United States Code. The ultimate determination as to which remedies to pursue will be made after your first consultation with us, based on a number of factors such as backlog on court calendars, the elements of proof required for each claim, and the likelihood of settlements.

At The Law Office of Estelle Roond, we take all cases on a "contingent fee" basis. A contingent fee means that the attorneys are paid only at the time when, and if, they recover money damages for the client. A contingent fee thereby allows an injured person with little or no financial resources to obtain competent legal assistance. At the time recovery is obtained, the attorneys' fee is a percentage of the award in the case. If there is no recovery, there will be no attorneys' fees.*

Contact the New York Police Misconduct and Civil Rights attorneys of The Law Office of Estelle Roond for experienced personal injury legal representation. We offer free initial consultations and have four personal injury offices across New York City for your convenience. We can go to you if you cannot come to us. To contact us, call 1-718-596-4800.
