Liability In Inmate Deaths
Unfortunately, inmate deaths at county jails are very common. A number of older inmates suffer medical emergencies. But suicides are the leading cause of death. Jail staff have a responsibility to provide inmates with reasonably adequate medical care. When jail staff don’t provide inmates with reasonable care and this leads to injury or death they may face civil liability. A victim or their family will normally have the ability to file a claim for damages. A wrongful death attorney can evaluate the specific facts of your case and let you know if you have a claim that can be pursued.
