What is considered police brutality? Can I sue for injuries by a police officer who was unnecessarily forceful with me or my child?

Police brutality occurs when the police do not use proportional force in a given set of circumstances. What that means is that the police need to respond to what is in front of them in a reasonable manner. There is no reason to take someone to the ground that does not pose a threat. Likewise if someone does pose a threat than the police are probably justified in using significant force. A personal injury lawyer can evaluate your police brutality case.
