Unlawful Arrest and Police Assault Cases

Brutality or the use of excessive force by a police officer that has led to the victim suffering bodily or psychological harm, may be grounds for a personal injury claim against the South African Police Services (SAPS). In such matters, there is usually an abuse of authoritative power and the force used is unreasonable or unnecessary.

Such incidents can include:

  • unlawful arrests
  • unlawful detention by police
  • wrongful detainment
  • illegal or improper search
  • racial profiling
  • excessive use of force
  • sexual abuse
