Police Misconduct & Actions against the Police
David Phillips & Partners Solicitors are experts at pursuing actions against the police.
We have over 27 years experience in winning these often difficult cases, exclusively representing only those who have suffered as a result of police misconduct.
We help our clients pursue cases for wrongful arrest, false imprisonment, assault and battery and malicious prosecution. We also guide them through the complaints procedure if necessary.
Taking Action against the Police
If you believe you may have the right to pursue an action against the police, please fill out the enquiry form on the right of this page or call us for free on 0800 027 7870. When you do contact us by phone or e-mail, please confirm the following information with a brief description of what happened:
- Did the police charge you with any offence?
- Have you been found guilty at court?
- Were you injured during arrest or detention?
- Do you have anything else to claim for other than your injuries?
- Do you intend to, or have you already, complained about the police’s conduct?
- Do you want to claim compensation?
- Are you in receipt of any benefits such as income support or job seekers allowance?
It’s our job to make sure the entire claims process is handled properly and you don’t end up at a disadvantage against the police. We will always call upon the Independent Police Complaints Commission to supervise the case. Claiming against the police should be no different than claiming against a private business (or anybody).
We’ll work with you to put together a robust case and fight for your justice by the book. Fairness is always guaranteed.

Our actions against the police solicitors are mainly based at the Liverpool HQ but wherever you are in the country, we can help you get justice for what has happened. Call 0800 027 7870 as soon as possible for advice on your specific situation.
