PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that Freddie Gray's parents recently reached a $6.4 million settlement with the city of Baltimore over the death of their son, Freddie Gray. 25 year old Freddie Gray was critically injured while in police custody, and died a week after his arrest. He had suffered a spinal cord injury and slipped into a coma. Six Baltimore police officers were charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, after a medical examiner's report ruled Gray's death as a homicide. Baltimore officials voted earlier this month and approved the settlement. The settlement comes nearly five months after his death. The unfortunate incident with Freddie Gray sparked awareness of police brutality, as well as rioting. The officers who were charged are facing trial, and according to The NY Times, "the mayor said the settlement 'should not be interpreted as a judgment on the guilt or innocence of the officers facing trial.'"
Legal-Bay has been an advocate for victims of police brutality, police abuse, wrongful imprisonment, Taser injuries, and cases of Civil Rights violations involving racial discrimination. Public awareness has been growing on these cases, with incidents in Baltimore, Maryland, New York, Charleston, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Los Angeles. Legal-Bay has been a leader in the legal funding industry in regards to funding police brutality cases, and as of late, their applications have been rising due to public awareness growing on these unfortunate types of cases.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent settlement, "We have closely monitored this tragic case and are happy to hear that the family is satisfied with the police brutality settlement figure. Their loved one will never come back, but hopefully settlements like this around the country will get public officials' – and tax payers' – attention that police misconduct against blacks and minorities must stop."
