Corrections Officer/Inmate Assault Cases
Were You a Victim of Prisoner Assault?
We sometimes have the opportunity to advocate on behalf of people who have been injured while in custody. Whether on the first night in jail or in the midst of a lengthy prison sentence, a person in jail or prison does not have to accept violence as a matter of course. If you or your family member has been hurt through inmate-on-inmate assault or assaulted by a corrections officer, contact us to schedule a consultation.
Excessive Force by Corrections Officers
In our advocacy work for jail and prison inmates who have been assaulted, we insist on a “no excuse” position when it comes to violence perpetrated by Department of Corrections officers. Corrections officers are too quick to hit first and ask questions later. We are prepared to fight for fair compensation for our clients who have been hurt without justification while in prison.
When we investigate the circumstances behind inmate-on-inmate assault, we often learn that the assailant had a history of violence. Instead of detaining the prisoner appropriately – either in isolation or with other violent offenders – authorities had placed a violent sociopath among the general population. We are prepared to represent clients injured by stabbings, beatings and prisoner sexual assaults by known violent inmates.
