The police continue to protect our streets every day, but sometimes they can get it wrong. Whether it be a wrongful arrest, false imprisonment, an assault or a false conviction, if you have been mistreated by the police you may have a compensation claim.
The Police arrested my client following a Road Traffic Accident and believing that he was driving under the influence of drugs. He had provided a zero reading on a roadside breath test, but due to the size of his pupils it was believed he was under the influence of drugs. Following examination by a doctor at the police station he was released with no further action.
