What can be done if you have been beaten while in jail?

Orlando, FL |

Someone was beaten by some guys in jail. He is hurt, what recourse does he have?

Attorney Answers 1


If he was assaulted without provocation, he can sue the individuals who beat him. If the jail was somehow negligent in allowing the assault to occur, he may have a claim against the Sheriff or other entity responsible for security at the jail. These are tough cases and he would need to consult a lawyer specializing in that type of case.
