Our collaborative approach allows us to see a case from various angles to identify all legal defenses.

Prison Deaths

Did Your Loved One Die Or Suffer Serious Injury While In Custody?

Each year, a number of people die or suffer serious injury while in Indiana police custody or while in prison serving a sentence. Often these deaths and injuries do not need to occur and could have been prevented by simple measures. For example, the failure to supervise addicts going through withdrawal can lead to an unnecessary death.

When a correction facility delayed necessary treatment or ignored red flags that indicated an individual was a suicide risk, your family may need to bring a lawsuit to hold the facility responsible for its deliberate indifference.

If your loved one dies while in custody, contact the Indianapolis lawyers of Hayes Ruemmele LLC by calling 317-978-9779. We can help you answer whether a correctional facility failed to uphold its reasonable duty of care.
