Most police officers are hard-working men and women protecting their city’s citizens; however, sometimes police officers take it too far when making an arrest, and can cause a debilitating brain injury when excessive force is used.
A brain injury can result if you are slammed against the ground, shoved into a wall or hit in the head during your arrest. The consequences of a brain injury are severe and may include:
- Memory problems
- Concentration problems
- Vision changes
- Nerve damage
- Communication impairment
- Depression and other mood changes
