I am prepared to represent you as your lawyer for prison or jail medical malpractice cases, including those that involve:
- Failure to provide medication
- Failure to provide treatment
- Overprescribing medication
- Wrong prescription
- Delayed care or diagnosis
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Insufficient access to mental healthcare
- Surgical mistakes
Insufficient healthcare in prison or jail may amount to a malpractice claim, a civil rights claim, and/or a capital habeas claim. In each of these types of cases, there are statutes of limitations (time restrictions) on filing the claim. It is important to act fast. Talk to me, an attorney with knowledge of each of these areas, to determine the extent of your claim.
A conviction does not take away your right to proper healthcare.
Fighting the prison or jail system while you or your loved one is incarcerated is difficult and scary. But you should not feel intimidated when your, or your loved one’s, health is at stake. Access to healthcare is a civil right, and prisons and jails have a duty to provide medical care to inmates and prisoners. If a prison or jail has failed to provide proper healthcare services, I can help you obtain the justice that you are owed.
All medical malpractice claims are complicated, requiring understanding of medical records, medical standards of care, and causations of harm. They often involve eye witnesses, extensive evidence, and expert witnesses. When malpractice occurs within a prison or jail, it adds an additional layer to the claim. As an experienced prison and jail medical malpractice lawyer, I handle all of these moving parts for you.

My understanding of how inmates are treated in the prison and jail healthcare systems and my experience as a medical malpractice attorney combine to help me effectively evaluate and pursue your claim.
