Case – Physical aggression caused by an on-duty police officer

Capital Lawyers were instructed to pursue a civil claim against a constabulary when one of its police officers used excessive force during an arrest.

Following a successful request for disclosure, the bodycam of the officer clearly showed the assault, which proved to be vital evidence.

Outcome – £4,000 settlement was awarded to the client

Capital Lawyers argued that the actions of the officer were arbitrary, oppressive and unconstitutional, which, combined with the bodycam evidence, allowed us to achieve a £4,000 settlement for our client – without having to go to court.
