Hudgell Solicitors™ | Civil Liberties

Civil Liberties

Civil liberties breaches and police misconduct

Our team of specialists at Hudgell Solicitors represent hundreds of clients across England and Wales in legal action relating to misconduct or failings by the police, leading to breaches of victims’ civil liberties.

We are currently investigating cases relating to alleged failings in police investigations following sudden deaths and murders which involve potential breaches of their Duty of Care and breaches under the Human Rights Act.

Our experts are also supporting many clients who were wrongfully arrested, unlawfully detained in custody or allege to have been the victims of police battery and assault. We have also supported people wrongly accused of serious crimes including battery, murder, kidnapping, child neglect and firearms and drugs related crimes.

Serious concerns have been raised about internal police force investigations following complaints, with many leaving families feeling frustrated and too easily dismissed.

Making a claim against the police

Hudgell Solicitors has a track record of successfully holding police forces to account for their actions, ensuring families and victims are supported in asking serious questions, and advising them throughout any subsequent Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigations into their case.

We have a track record of securing admissions, damages, and apologies to those who turn to us for answers.

If you feel you have been a victim of police misconduct, wrongful arrest and detention, or that the police have failed in their duty to protect your civil liberties in any way, our team of police claims specialists can offer free legal advice today.

Our team has extensive knowledge of the legislation and procedures police are required to follow, and that has resulted in us securing many settlements for clients in cases of misconduct against police forces across England and Wales, involving breaches of the Human Rights Act, Police and Criminal Evidence Act and other legislation.

Should you be a victim of any form of police misconduct which has resulted in your civil liberties or human rights being infringed then you could be entitled to compensation.

Misconduct can include the police entering your home without a warrant or damaging your property or possessions, discrimination, and the failure to protect life through their investigations.
