Assaulted by the Police
An assault can occur when a police officer causes you to fear physical contact. A battery can occur when a police officer makes physical contact with you, for example by using a baton, truncheon, CS gas or Taser. The use of force must be necessary, reasonable and proportionate.
We have acted for many individuals in claims against the police for assault. Complaints to the police must be brought no later than 12 months from the incident and personal injury claims must be made within 3 years of the incident or diagnosis of injury sustained from the incident.
