Prison Neglect Lawyer

A prison neglect lawyer defends the rights of incarcerated individuals by holding the government accountable when it violates their civil liberties and human dignity. They handle a variety of cases, including those involving mistreatment or abuse by correctional facility staff, medical negligence, and failure to protect prisoners from assault and other dangerous conditions. A prison neglect lawyer must have a strong understanding of both civil rights law and the criminal justice system in order to effectively prosecute a case.

Injuries suffered by inmates in jails and prisons are common, as they often face physical violence from other inmates, deteriorating facilities, and substandard medical care. They may suffer head trauma due to severe assaults, serious internal injuries from burns or falls, and even wrongful death as a result of negligence in the facility. A prison abuse attorney can help them to receive the compensation they deserve for their suffering.

The constitutional right to a minimum standard of living for persons in custody requires that prisons and jails provide adequate medical care for those they hold. Inmates lack the ability to seek private health care outside of a prison, and are therefore at the mercy of the medical staff at their correctional institute. It is a violation of federal law to deny inmates access to adequate medical care, and can be a form of cruel and unusual punishment.

Our firm has brought numerous prison and jail medical malpractice claims against the city, county, or private company that contracts with a facility to provide healthcare. These cases require evidence that the entity violated a person’s constitutional rights by engaging in a pattern, practice, custom, or policy of deliberate indifference to the person. This is a high standard that our lawyers consistently strive to meet when seeking to hold officials responsible for the harms caused by their actions or inaction.

We also prosecute prison wrongful death cases where inmates have died as a result of neglect, abuse, or maltreatment within a prison environment. In these cases, we must show that the defendant owed a duty of care to the individual, that the defendant breached this duty by failing to take action to prevent or mitigate the harms, and that these actions resulted in the injury or death.
