Prominent Cases of Police Brutality in Recent Years
2023 – Tennessee Police Brutality Case
Recently, five former police officers were charged by US authorities for the brutal beating of a Black man “Tyre Nichols” in Memphis. Nichols, 29, succumbed to his injuries from the fatal police assault. On Jan. 7th, the police officers stopped Tyre Nichols for reckless driving as per a statement released by the Memphis Police Department.
Attorneys representing the victim’s family reported in a statement that the “police brutalized him to the point of being unrecognizable.” This was after Nichols was chased by the five officers. The police officers were fired following an internal investigation that found the use of excessive force and the failure to render aid.
The Memphis officers are facing indictments of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault in addition to second-degree murder charges.
2020 – Minneapolis Police Brutality Case
In May 2020, the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of a white police officer was caught on film. The videos spread rapidly sparking mass outrage and waves of protest across the country. Floyd’s death, who was Black, led to a close scrutiny of police brutality and its aftermath.
The attorney for George Floyd’s family stated that the city of Minneapolis offered a $27 million settlement for the federal lawsuit. This is the largest pretrial civil rights settlement ever.
2020 – Kentucky Police Brutality Case
Breonna Taylor’s family was paid $12 million in settlement by the city of Louisville, Kentucky. Breonna Taylor was shot dead by police officers who were acting on a no-knock warrant. The settlement also included stipulated reforms on how police warrants were to be handled.
Winning Police Brutality Lawsuits Can Take a Lot of Time
Police brutality settlements have a history of being substantial. Unfortunately, they also take a long time to settle. It is common for police departments to continue delaying, canceling, and rescheduling hearings. In fact, it is rare for police departments to take responsibility for their actions quickly or to settle fairly.
It can take anywhere from months to years to successfully resolve a claim and obtain a fair settlement. Your attorneys will negotiate for a settlement that covers your injuries, damages, and loss.

Types of Police Brutality Lawsuits We Can Help You With
Police brutality lawsuits largely deal with the police and may have criminal components. However, Direct Legal Funding only provides cash advances where there is a personal injury lawsuit filed against the responsible police officers. This can be owing to any of the following reasons:
These claims where excessive force is used are usually the most public cases. The officer’s biases or intentions don’t matter in most cases. The central legal question is whether the amount of force used was reasonable or not.
These types of police brutality cases are controlled by the Fourteenth Amendment and usually deal with constitutional issues. There are four basic components to these claims:
- Initiation of a criminal legal proceeding.
- Without probable cause.
- With malice.
- and a judgment in favor of the victim.
Failure to Intervene
There are often multiple defendants or multiple responsible parties in police brutality lawsuits. If one law enforcement officer witnesses another police officer violating someone’s civil rights, they have a duty to prevent or stop that violation from occurring. This law means that individual police officers involved in a claim can be held severally liable for the injuries and damages.
False arrest deals with illegal searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment protections. They are also controlled by the constitution. An officer can be proven responsible in a police brutality lawsuit if they lacked probable cause for believing that the accused had committed a crime or was in the process of committing a crime.
