Justice for Victims of Taser Injuries and Deaths Caused by Police
Denver Area Civil Claims Attorneys
Taser use by police has increased dramatically in the mistaken belief that a Taser poses no real danger to the person being shocked by it. But Tasers are dangerous, sometimes even deadly, weapons.
More than 200 Americans have died as a direct result of being tasered. A number of lawsuits have been brought against the Taser company by police officers themselves claiming that a single Taser shot caused stroke or heart attack, hearing and vision loss, neurological damage, severe burns, fractures and shoulder dislocation.
These are injuries caused by a single shot – police may zap “suspects” multiple times.
If you suffered a Taser injury or a family member died after being repeatedly or unnecessarily tasered by the police, you have every right to seek justice.

Using Dangerous Force in Non-Dangerous Situations
According to the Taser company, its stun guns are meant to “quickly incapacitate dangerous, combative or high-risk subjects.” But the use of Tasers has not been restricted the dangerous; Tasers have been used on people already in custody, on drug addicts and mentally ill persons, on juveniles, even on non-violent protestors and people suffering medical problems.
Clearly, in many instances the use of a Taser is an unjustified use of deadly force.
