Justice For Those Stabbed Inside a Prison

Attorney contributor Brian Kent works as an experienced lawyer representing victims in prison stabbing lawsuits in PA. Brian recently shared some legal options available to stabbing victims, including those injured in prisons. 

"There are laws to protect victims from preventable dangers, even those serving time in prisons and corrections facilities. These laws protect inmates from other inmates and excessive force from the corrections officers. They also create a safeguard for those employed at the prison. Prisons have an obligation to provide appropriate security for those on their property. They need to ensure that they implement a high level of safety measures, including a video surveillance system, a staffed crew of trained corrections officers, and a protocol that addresses what to do in the event of violence."

"If a prison neglects its security measures or is not taken seriously by the guards, it can be found negligent. Any conditions that may increase the risk of violent incidents must be reported. As violence increases in the facility, crimes may be considered reasonably foreseeable. There are grounds for victims of foreseeable stabbings to file a lawsuit. Inmates and their families are encouraged to speak to an experienced lawyer."
