Successful Claims against Police for Battery and False Imprisonment – SH

O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors are experts in assisting clients sue the police for false arrest, unlawful imprisonment and malicious prosecution. Read about one of our successful cases below.

SH was in a relationship. Her partner’s son made false allegations to his teacher and the police that SH had hit him. The son alleged that the scratches on his body were caused by SH that morning. The teacher took him to the doctor, who found that the scratches were old, and could not have been caused that morning. Despite this, the police charged her and made an application for an AVO to be put in place against her. The charges and the AVO application were dismissed.

SH approached O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors who successfully brought a claim against the police for battery and false imprisonment. The matter settled.
