Fighting a Wide Range of Police Misconduct in Alabama
The Lasseter Law Firm helps people who have been subjected to police brutality or excessive force in a traffic stop, street stop, arrest or other encounter with police. The lack of training, standards and consequences in many police departments has created a culture where officers believe they can get away with serious violations of individual civil rights. Rogue officers go to great lengths to cover up their misdeeds, including trumping up bogus charges on their victims to make them appear violent and justify their own violence and put their victim at a serious disadvantage. With twenty-five years of experience in police misconduct claims, Alan Lasseter knows how to overcome governmental immunity and hold police officers, police departments and municipalities liable for misconduct. Police misconduct cases handled by the Lasseter Law Firm include excessive force and police brutality, jail medical negligence, prison abuse, false arrest and more.
Helping Victims of Abuse in Schools
Alan Lasseter pursues cases against schools for physical or sexual abuse committed on students by school personnel. Abuse by school staff is a state-created danger, and school districts can be held liable for money damages under Section 1983 of the United States Code.
Helping Persons with Mental Health Victimized by Police
One of the most tragic cases of police misconduct occurs when police assault or abuse people with mental health issues. Often times the calls come from the family members themselves, who are concerned about a family member in distress. The police should be adequately trained to go into these situations understanding the circumstances and the necessity of sensitivity, but instead they too often fall back on their paramilitary training and escalate a situation into one of violence. Even though the courts generally lean heavily in favor of giving police immunity for their wrongful conduct, Alan Lasseter seeks to hold police accountable in these situations, including filing claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
