Riverside County and San Bernardino County jails and prisons are filled with many violent individuals who can be aggressive and dangerous.
Incarceration in a jail or prison is stressful and often dangerous for those confined there. Guards and personnel are there to enforce the rules of the jail or prison and to ensure the safety of inmates. Unfortunately too many jail and prison guards and facility personnel either haven't been professionally trained or don't follow their departmental training, resulting in the death or severe injury of many on their watch or under their care, a violation of their Civil Rights under the Constitution.
These violations and misconduct arise in under many different circumstances, including the following: Excessive force by guards and facility personnel, sexual assault by guards and facility personnel, conditions of confinement resulting in injury, lack of medical care, and failure to protect.
Time is of the essence as there are statutes of limitations applicable to the filing of Government Claims against governmental agencies, such as Cities and their Police Departments, Counties and their Sheriffs' Departments and their employees. If a Claim and/or lawsuit is not timely filed, you will forever lose your ability to seek justice in a court of law. It is important that you consult as soon as possible with an attorney who understands this complex area of the law, who can review issues of liability with you, and make recommendations on the best course of action you can follow.
