Negligence - Prisons

Negligence by Prisons


Prison negligence claims can involve a wide range of circumstances – and it is essential to seek expert legal advice if considering making a complaint about prison negligence.


There are many ways in which a prisoner can suffer neglect at the hands of prisons and their officers.


In prison, prisoners lose many of their rights but they keep some including;


  • The right to food and water
  • Protection from assault
  • Access to courts
  • The right to have contact with their family
  • Right to good healthcare


Incidents of prison negligence might involve denial of food or water, no access to healthcare or a prisoner not being protected from an assault. The injuries suffered as a result of neglect can be extremely damaging for the individuals.


Prison negligence can cause immense distress and can potentially ruin lives.


Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors can advise those who have suffered injury as a result of prison negligence on how to make a formal complaint to the relevant prison.


Duncan Lewis may be able to secure legal aid, or to offer a no win no fee arrangement for advising on police 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.
