Wrongful Arrest Lawyers in North Carolina
Under North Carolina law, the police have every right to arrest you – if they have probable cause. That means that they must have a reasonable belief that you have committed a crime. If you have been arrested or detained and you believe that there was no probable cause, then you deserve to be compensated.
Johnson & Nicholson, PLLC can help you to get that compensation by bringing aggressive legal action against those at fault.
Make Them Pay
Wrongful arrests happen across the country all the time. Often, it can be a case of the police overstepping the bounds of their authority, sometimes it can be the culmination of harassment, and other times, it can be simple incompetence or negligence.
Whatever the circumstances, your rights as an American have been violated. Not only that, but you may have incurred financial losses if you were forced to miss work, and there is a social cost to being publicly arrested that can be hard to recoup even when released.
Factors that are often part of wrongful arrest cases include:
- Mental anguish
- Time away from work or family
- Loss of social standing
- Lasting impact on reputation
For those infringements and costs, you deserve to be financially compensated. We know that it will not repay the emotional price and alleviate the feelings you had when you were arrested, but it is a way of holding those responsible to account and making them pay for their actions, as well as making sure that you are not left out of pocket for a situation beyond your control.
