HLG Recovers $525,000 Police Brutality Settlement
Hornsby Wins Wrongful Death Suit for Georgia Family Who Lost Their Father
When a Georgia man died after being strapped to a chair for 14 hours in a county jail, despite his worsening medical condition, we successfully fought to settle this wrongful death lawsuit for the grieving family.
As we noted, "This could have been anybody's father, son, or relative. . . The government has unlimited resources on their side, and we thought this was a significant civil rights case."
The result is that the family of the deceased has received a financial settlement for this unlawful death and the case has sent a message to the legal system to be more vigilant in protecting the lives of those in its custody.
Police misconduct is always unacceptable and we take great pride in being one of a select few law firms in Georgia that regularly prosecutes police brutality cases.
