Prisoners’ Rights

While inmates and convicted felons do not retain full constitutional rights, inmates are still afforded basic civil rights that remain protected under the United States Constitution and federal law, as well as under state law. As part of our civil rights practice, The Andrews Law Firm specializes in litigating a wide variety of claims on behalf of inmates whose rights have been violated by various governmental entities, agencies, and actors. Our lawyers have the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to effectively represent and protect the rights of inmate in claims of:

  • Deliberate Indifference
  • Inmate Abuse & Excessive Force
  • Denial of Medical Care
  • Failure to Monitor
  • Hepatitis C
  • Cruel & Unusual Punishment
  • Wrongful Death Actions

Over 40 years ago this country’s highest court found that inmates have the constitutional right to receive adequate medical care in correctional facilities. Such right may be violated when a correctional facility denies an inmate with Hepatitis C virus the treatment necessary to cure their infection—treatment the inmate is constitutionally entitled to receive.

If you believe your rights or the rights of a loved one, are being violated in any way, such as the right to medical care or treatment in correctional facilities, we urge you to contact our firm today to get in touch with our legal staff and set up your free consultation.
