Prisoners Rights cases are the most difficult of all of the civil rights claims that we file. While we have great success in these cases, these cases are very challenging. Prisoners Rights cases include lack of medical care, medical malpractice, medical neglect or medical indifference, suicide, correction officer abuse, failure to supervise other inmates who attack our clients, incorrect time credit calculations.
An example of a good prisoners rights case is very the initial medical screening picks-up an unknown disease the inmate did not know about and the prison does nothing to give the person treatment for that disease while in custody. The inmate is putting in sick notes and grievances about the not feeling well and the person winds up becoming permanently disabled as a result of the mistake at the initial intake.
Another example of a good prisoners rights case is where the inmate is kept in custody beyond the statutory maximum on his case due to a clerical error on the part of the prison. In that case, damages are computed based on the amount of extra days spent in custody by the inmate.
Many prisoners rights case have incredible results due to the amount of time the person is in custody and the lack of overall supervision of the client and the client’s needs.
