People who are incarcerated rely on law enforcement officers to address their medical needs promptly. Though protection from cruel and unusual punishment is enshrined in the Bill of Rights, many prisoners have suffered permanent physical damage, and even death, because of conscious inaction from corrections and police personnel. My Raleigh firm, the Law Office of Gregory Kash, aggressively pursues justice for the victims of deliberate indifference. These cases are not simple personal injury or wrongful death claims, but complex cases that are usually highly contested by government authorities. With more than 25 years of experience, I know how to defeat powerful adversaries and deliver comprehensive legal support to clients even if it takes a long time to achieve a proper resolution.
Proving that someone failed to do something can be hard. My background in civil rights actions in state and federal court helps clients make the strongest possible case that the following legal elements of deliberate indifference exist:
If you have been deprived of your constitutional guarantee of receiving necessary and appropriate medical care while incarcerated, you have a right to seek legal help, but getting information out of prison facilities and police departments can be extremely difficult. That is why you need an attorney with experience in these types of actions to investigate what occurred. Even if you’re unsure whether deliberate indifference made your medical condition worse, my firm offers a free initial consultation to assess whether a claim exists.
The Law Office of Gregory Kash represents North Carolina clients in deliberate indifference claims and other cases involving injuries that occur during encounters with law enforcement. Please call 919-916-1856 or contact me online for a free consultation. My office is in downtown Raleigh.
