Civil Actions Against the Police
Claiming compensation from the police (or other detaining body acting with police-like powers) is not something to be taken on lightly. Civil actions against the police are complicated and should only be undertaken by specialists in the field.
For that reason, if you want help to sue the police, contact Donoghue Solicitors on freephone 08000 124 209, or complete the online form to the right of this page.
What are civil actions against the police?
Civil actions against the police are claims for compensation made through the courts system. They are claims made by people who have been wronged by the police in some way, for example by wrongful arrest and false imprisonment. The victim of police misconduct will usually seek compensation (for details see the police abuse compensation page of our website) and their legal costs.
Civil actions against the police can be distinguished from complaints against the police where the aim is for the police officers concerned to be disciplined.
How much does it cost to sue the police?
Suing the police is best done with a firm of specialist solicitors to ensure you have the maximum chance of success. Donoghue Solicitors is one such firm.
