Police Negligence

Often it is difficult to pursue a claim for police negligence when the police are performing their duties, but not impossible e.g. if a police officer is driving too fast and causes an accident. Police negligence law has evolved over the years and each case will be considered on its facts.

How we can help

If you feel that you have been the victim of negligence by the police then please call the civil liberties team and one of the team members will  discuss your case with you and advise on the next steps.

Our Civil Liberties specialists act for individuals who have been ill treated at the hands of the police or who have been wrongly caught up in the criminal justice system.

Our team have represented many high profile clients but equally for those who do not receive any publicity at all. Whatever, the nature of your claim, you will receive the same high level of service tailored to your needs.

The team is known nationwide for its expertise and effectiveness and pursuit of claims for damages and complaints against the Police.

We will look after you with our friendly, down to earth approach, clear and consistent communication and reassuring transparency on costs.

Our Fees

Different levels of legal aid may be available for your case and we always assess new enquiries to see if they are in scope for funding – this will depend on the facts/type of case and means assessment. Wherever a case falls outside of scope we may be able to offer you a fixed fee and/or our hourly rates. All these funding options can be discussed with our new enquiry team.
