Injured Grandfather In Alabama Highlights Need For Personal Injury Lawyers

Cases of violent incidents between people of color and local police forces have dominated the news. From Eric Garner’s death in Staten Island to the recent incident involving a teenage girl at a Texas pool party, the American public is having a conversation about justice and violence. In cases where personal injury may have been unjustly inflicted, a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that a case is tried fairly.

Tragically, another controversial incident of police force took place in central Alabama when Madison police assaulted a 57 year old Indian man, Sureshbhai Patel. His grandson, Chirag Patel, had brought him to Alabama from India to help his wife care for their young children while he studied electrical engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. An early morning walk quickly turned tragic as miscommunication led to violence on the streets of Madison.

A concerned citizen called the police to inform them that a suspicious man was lingering around houses. According to the official statement, police arrived on the scene and proceeded to give Sureshbhai Patel a pat down. Patel, who does not speak English, pulled away and was then forced to the ground resulting in a severe injury which left Patel paralyzed and hospitalized. The family quickly raised concerns over Patel’s treatment by local officers noting that Patel was simply walking on a public street and that his only suspicious action was being Indian.
