Jail Neglect or Abuse Attorneys

Whether you are in jail awaiting trial or completing your prison sentence, you still have constitutional rights. If you or your loved ones are suffering through jail neglect and abuse, you have the right to a lawyer who can fight to protect your legal rights. At Robins Kaplan, we are highly experienced at handling prisoner abuse cases. If you or your loved ones have suffered physical or emotional harm at the hands of jail authorities or correctional officers, call us immediately in order to protect your legal rights.

Real Life Rights

Movies often show extreme brutality and abuse dealt to prisoners, and act as if these actions are permissible. In real life, this isn’t the case at all. You have many rights even while in prison, known as prisoner’s rights. If you feel the officers or prison guards are infringing on these rights, consult us immediately to find out how we can help.

Prisoner’s Rights

Prisoners’ rights include the right to communicate, the right to read basic material, the right to medical care, the right to adequate food and water, the right to clothing and shelter, the right to practice any religion, and the right to sue prison officials or the government for maltreatment. If any of these rights are being jeopardized, you need to take action against it.

Fighting for Your Rights

Jail neglect and abuse can come in many forms, including:

  • Discrimination in jail
  • Verbal abuse, which includes provocative taunting and name calling
  • Sexual abuse by prison guards
  • Inability to prevent sexual or physical abuse by other prisoners
  • Failure to understand the mental state of an individual so as to prevent a suicide
  • Refusing prisoners’ rights, such as visitation, medical aid, food, or exercise time

Many times, a prisoner is punished for having complained about a jail guard. If that has happened to you, call us so we can put a stop to these actions. In cases like these there is a chance that officials at the jail might try to talk you out of the lawsuit against the neglect and abuse that you or your loved ones are facing or faced. Do not let that happen. Stop the abuse and neglect before it gets completely out of hand.
