LOS ANGELES, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Accounts differ of just what precisely occurred on July 12, 2012, when protestors from the Occupy movement clashed with police in downtown Los Angeles. The incident, which has come to be known in the media as the "Art Walk Melee," nevertheless underscores the need for personal injury lawyers like those at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc. when chaotic incidents result in injuries under controversial or confusing circumstances. As you would expect, accounts coming from the Los Angeles Police Department are tending to point the finger at the protestors for sparking the violent incident, which resulted in four police injuries according to reports, and at least 15 protestors arrested. Protestors – and some witnesses – cite a possible police overreaction.
Press accounts in these kinds of cases will inevitably vary significantly, and hashing out the incident in the court of public opinion won't do much for the injured parties in any case. Not only the policemen, but also protestors or bystanders who may have suffered injuries that are as yet unreported may well require the services of an outstanding personal injury attorney in Los Angeles to achieve their due compensation.
In fact, the services of outstanding attorneys such as Cameron Yadidi Brock and the other fine attorneys at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock are perhaps at their most valuable in situations as difficult to piece together as the Art Walk incident. Sometimes, the only way to get to the truth of a situation where an injury has resulted is to engage the services of a competent personal injury lawyer.
Whether the injuries are thought to have been caused by protestors, the police, or other actors, incidents like the Art Walk Melee can be extremely difficult to unravel without employing a serious legal mechanism to encourage a real understanding of the chain of events. Anyone suffering from injuries as the result of this kind of incident, whether they are a member of the police force, a protestor who feels he or she was subjected to unjustified violence, or a bystander who was drawn into the situation, should investigate obtaining legal representation to help them achieve the compensation they may very well deserve.
Obviously, the police and protestors involved in the Art Walk incident last week may want to consult a well-regarded personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles like Cameron Yadidi Brock and the rest of the fine staff at the at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc. Sometimes, the only real path to truth and fairness is the legal one.
