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 Gaskins Bennett Birrell, LLP, 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 correction 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.
A prisoner’s rights include the right to 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
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 are all forms of jail neglect and abuse. Many times, a prisoner is punished for having complained against a jail guard or acting up against them. The best thing to do will be to take a step back and choose to 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. Don’t let that happen. Stop the abuse and neglect before it gets completely out of hand and put this matter in the spotlight.
Timely Legal Aid
Our experience and expertise is at your service and we will leave no stone unturned until the abusers have the finger pointing at them and they compensate you for their despicable behavior or neglect. Save your loved ones or yourself from another day of the trauma that jail neglect and abuse brings.
