Handling Inmate Death Cases in Tennessee
If you have suffered the loss of a loved one who died while being held
in jail or prison, you must carefully review the details of the death
to determine if his or her civil rights were violated. Inmate deaths are
a tragic occurrence in our nation's prisons and jails; sadly, these
deaths are often the result of poor supervision or negligence. Aside from
illness, many inmates suffer fatal injuries at the hands of other inmates
or prison guards.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice:
- 960 inmates died in U.S. jails in 2008
- There were 3,452 deaths reported by U.S. prison facilities in 2008
All inmates, despite the nature of their criminal convictions, have the
right to be held in safe conditions, with access to proper medical care,
psychological care, and nourishment. With the help of our firm's civil
rights litigation team, we can determine and prove if your loved one's
civil rights were violated while in prison. If this was the case for your
loved one in Hamblen County, Knox County, Knoxville, or Morristown, we
can go about filing a
wrongful death claim on his or her behalf.
