False Imprisonment in Prison

False Imprisonment in Prison


The act of false or wrongful imprisonment is considered as an offence against the person and can in some cases be considered assault.


False imprisonment involves the unlawful and intentional or reckless detention of the victim and occurs most frequently in prisons.


Someone who has been falsely imprisoned is likely to suffer many detrimental effects which sometimes include developing mental health issues and even falling into financial difficulty.


Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors can offer advice on cases involving wrongful imprisonment. We advise clients to get in touch as soon as possible, while any evidence is still available and memories of the incident remain fresh.


Duncan Lewis may be able to secure legal aid, or to offer a no win no fee arrangement for advising on prison complaints and claims – with competitively priced rates for privately funding a claim or After the Event (ATE) insurance, if either legal aid is unavailable or where a no win no fee basis is not possible.


For expert legal advice on actions against prisons and false imprisonment, do not hesitate to call Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors in confidence on 0333 772 0409.
