Police Chases

Pennsylvania and New Jersey Police Chase Injury Representation

Although we can usually count on our police to protect us, at times a police officer’s actions can cause serious injury or death to an innocent victim.  In such circumstances, Schwartz & Blackman is prepared to hold the police department accountable for their actions.

Police chases occur when the police are in pursuit of an actual or suspected violator of the law.  Most police departments have their own pursuit policies and procedures in place. However, that does not always mean that they are adhered to.  It is not uncommon for pedestrians or other motorists to be injured or even killed by either the police or the suspected fugitive during a police chase.  At times like these, you need the experience of Schwartz and Blackman to bring a lawsuit on your behalf.   We will investigate the event to determine the liability of the police and other parties. We will obtain all evidence available, including video from police cameras. We will help you get the compensation you deserve.

While we understand that the police must use force every day to subdue a suspected criminal. Excessive force by the police causing injury or death may give rise to a claim for violation of a victim’s civil rights. Your civil rights are guaranteed by the United States Constitution. Schwartz and Blackman will help you bring the person responsible for your injuries to justice and help you get what you deserve.
