Failure to Protect Attorney
In a jail or prison setting it is very common for there to be disputes and disagreements between inmates. Unfortunately, these disputes can often turn violent with inmates attacking other inmates or even raping them. The corrections officers and prison officials at the jail or prison have a duty to protect inmates from other inmates. This includes protecting inmates from being assaulted or injured by other inmates, and includes protecting inmates from being raped or killed by other inmates. If a jail or prison fails to provide adequate protection from other inmates, this may be a violation of an inmate’s Civil Rights. If you or a loved one has been injured in jail or prison as a result of the actions of another inmate, this may be a Civil Rights violation. The Oklahoma City Civil Rights Attorney at The Cotton Law Firm can help you protect your rights and recover damages for the violation of your Civil Rights.
Contact the Oklahoma City Civil Rights Attorney if you or a loved one has been injured, raped, or killed by another inmate.
