Police Brutality and Reform in New York City


Q: Have recent protests resulted in police reform in New York?

Long before George Floyd’s tragic death at the hands —and knees—of Minneapolis police, police brutality attorneys in New York and other American cities have been helping victims of police misconduct and brutality recover compensation for their injuries.

This most recent death rekindled the Black Lives Matter movement to a new level of outrage and sparked weeks of protests across the country demanding police reform and defunding of the police department.

What is police brutality or misconduct?

Police brutality or misconduct may arise when police use more than the minimal amount of force required to control a situation, or if they violate a victim’s civil rights or due process.

Kobe’s Widow Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit


Q: Can survivors of accident victims sue for damages?

New York City wrongful death attorneys and much of the nation were shocked to learn of the tragic death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, his teenaged daughter, and seven other people who were all killed in January in a helicopter crash.

Bryant’s widow and mother of the teen reportedly filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company claiming its pilot, who also perished in the crash, failed to use “ordinary care in piloting the aircraft” and that the company negligently caused the deaths of all on board.
