You get injured, file a suit, prove damages, and receive your award. This is not always true. Personal injury suits can be complicated and difficult.

Officers Tasered Franklin, fired their stun gun on him and dragged him out of his bedroom before realizing he was not the person they thought he was. Even after realizing this, the officers handcuffed him and put him in the police cruiser for resisting arrest.
