Police can be sued for chases that kill or injure: High Court

Police may now be held liable for damages if their negligent high-speed chases lead to the injury or death of innocent people. This is true due to a landmark judgment recently made by the Kentucky Supreme Court that overruled a 1952 decision granting blanket immunity to police against damages and injuries suffered by someone as a result of a police chase. Victims who suffered injury or the family members of victims that were killed during a police chase can sue the police officer involved or the department.
