Prison Inmate Stabbed in the Eye by Another Inmate

According to 12 WBOY, an inmate was stabbed in the eye at the FCI Fort Dix located at 5756 Hartford St & Pointville Road, Fort Dix, NJ 08640. 

On November 5, 2021, an inmate was hospitalized due to a stab wound in his eye. Another prisoner allegedly came from behind and violently stabbed him. 

The prison's warden was also in charge of the Manhattan federal jail where high-profile Jeffrey Epstein killed himself. The guards were allegedly sleeping or on the internet, according to prosecutors.

Filing a Lawsuit for Being Stabbed in Prison

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a stabbing victim attorney licensed in the state of New Jersey. Brian often represents victims injured in violent crimes, like stabbings, in civil lawsuits. Brian has provided some information regarding the available legal options for stab wound victims and what is necessary to file a lawsuit for being stabbed in prison.

"Premises liability laws exist to protect people from preventable crime. Even prison inmates and those detained in correctional facilities are allocated the same protection from other inmates in addition to excessive force used by the guards. Prisons, by law, should provide appropriate security for those residing within their property as well as the staff. Property security should include safety measures such as monitored video cameras, a sufficient amount of security guards, and properly followed protocols when violence happens."

"If wardens and other prison officials fail to take the security seriously and a crime or injury occurs, they can be found negligent. Prison wardens and correctional officers are supposed to respond to any misconduct and report any conditions increasing the risk of violence. If violence was on the rise inside the facility and yet they failed to upgrade their security measures, any crimes could be deemed foreseeable. Proving the crime resulted in the negligence on behalf of the prison officials would be the responsibility of an experienced stabbing victim attorney in a civil lawsuit."
