Police pursuits often occur at high speeds on busy roadways, endangering not only the officers and the vehicle they’re chasing but also innocent members of the public.
Police work is a dangerous job involving split-second decisions and the law provides officers protection from being sued for negligence when they are enforcing the law and protecting the public. However, Illinois law does not allow police officers to act with reckless disregard for the safety of the public. If you’ve been injured and need skilled representation for a police chase lawsuit, we’re here to help.

Our Recent Police Chase Lawsuit Settlement
At Mitchell, Hoffman & Wolf, we work hard to achieve the best possible settlement for our clients. Recently, Kenneth A. Hoffman and J. Wesley Mitchell represented a client injured in a police chase. The client was an innocent bystander, and her injuries were sustained from a crash caused by a police officer who engaged in a high-speed pursuit down a residential street.
The client turned to our skilled team for help, and we discovered the officer’s conduct violated Police Department Policy. We were able to establish through deposition testimony and the use of the Police Department’s own Policy Manual that the officer’s behavior was reckless and secured our client a settlement of $944,000.
