What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Prisoners’ Right to Safety

Prisoners’ rights are a controversial topic in the US. Many people view incarcerated people as unsympathetic, and do not seem especially moved by reports of inhumane prison conditions. However, the fact is that as long as a person is kept in prison, the government is assuming responsibility for his or her health. No matter what a person has been convicted of, he or she retains certain basic rights.

If you or a loved one has suffered from an attack or preventable injury in prison, you may have grounds for legal action. Jacksonville prisoner injury lawyer Don Guthrie, PA will work with you to see that human rights are upheld. Call our offices at 904-296-1088 to learn more.

Basic Requirements for Prisons

Despite the exaggerations made by some opponents of prisoners’ rights movements, state and federal prisons are not luxurious by any means. However, they are legally required to meet prisoners’ basic needs. If they do not, even a short prison sentence can quickly become cruel and unusual punishment.

A Jacksonville prison injury attorney may be able to help if you or a member of your family has been injured by a prison that failed to provide:

  • Reasonable protection from violent attacks
  • Adequate food and water
  • Hygienic living conditions
  • Necessary medical and psychological care
  • Protection from torture or other overly harsh punishments

You may be eligible for compensation for medical bills and other expenses. Perhaps more importantly, you can help protect potential future victims of unjust and illegal prison abuse.
