Jail Death & Injury

Has a loved one died because jail or prison officials ignored serious medical conditions or a known risk of suicide? Have you been injured because jail or prison officials ignored your serious medical conditions?

The United States Constitution requires that federal, state, and local jail and prison officials provide medical care for serious medical and mental health conditions, including the risk of suicide. A federal law, 42 U.S.C. § 1983, allows individuals whose constitutional rights have been violated to seek compensation in court. I represent individuals and the family members of individuals who have been injured or died because jail or prison officials ignored serious medical needs.

If you believe your constitutional rights have been violated due to a jail injury or jail death, use my online form or call 888-764-4141 for a free consultation.
