A prison that deprives prisoners of basic sustenance, including adequate medical care, is incompatible with the concept of human dignity and has no place in civilized society
Justice Anthony Kennedy, United States Supreme Court.
Brown v. Plata, 2011.
Prisoners have a constitutionally-protected right to medical care. Yet all too often, it seems a prisoner's right to medical care, sometimes even lifesaving medical treatment is a distant second to cost and other administrative concerns.
We handle the following cases:
- Prisoner Medical Care (Deliberate Indifference to serious medical needs)
- Prison Assault/Sexual Assault
- Wrongful Death
