Examples of Prison Personal Injury Case Claims:
Correction Officer Abuse, Neglect, and Assault
The Eighth Amendment in The United States Constitution protects against “cruel and unusual punishment.” As an inmate in the New York state correctional system, you have a right to proper medical care and to a healthy and safe environment. If a correctional officer has beaten, abused, and injured you or someone you know, that is a violation of your rights as a person and as a prisoner. You have a reasonable expectation that the staff that is employed to help you will not abuse you, deny you medical care, or treat you unjustly. If you have been beaten or abused in a New York prison and sustained serious injuries, please call our office for a free consultation today: (646) 217-0749.
Delay In Or Complete Failure To Provide Medical Care
In prison you do not lose your right to timely medical care when you have sustained an injury, have a preexisting condition, or are otherwise feeling unwell. If you have requested medical treatment while in prison and that medical treatment has been denied to you or delayed, you may have a prison personal injury or medical malpractice claim. Giordano Law Offices has recovered millions for the families of clients in instances where the client was denied life-saving medicine like insulin, in the case of a diabetic client. Health concerns are often more critical in prison according to recent study by the National Institutes of Justice, which concluded that the age of 50 should be the cutoff age for the definition of “old” in prison because “the stress of staying safe behind bars, personal financial woes, drug or alcohol withdrawal, and a history of poor health care can speed up the aging process for inmates.” Therefore health concerns can sometimes progressively get worse in prison if not tended to promptly and appropriately. If your loved one was denied necessary and life-saving medication and as a result your loved one passed away or was seriously injured or debilitated, you may have a prison personal injury or wrongful death claim. In instances such as this, retaining highly skilled legal counsel is paramount. Giordano Law Offices never charges for an initial consultation, so call us toll-free today at 866-NYC-JUSTICE.
Deprivation of Medication, Nourishment, and Water
Prison inmates have the right to necessary medication, food, and water. Additionally, if your religion and in some cases, your medical condition, require that you have certain food and beverage accommodations, prisons are required to provide you with compliant nourishment. If you or if someone you know has been denied necessary medication, food, or water, please contact our seasoned prison personal injury attorneys today at: (646) 217-0749.
If you have been in solitary confinement for a prolonged period of time, data has shown that the mental and psychological impact of such confinement is debilitating. If you have been in solitary confinement for prolonged periods of time in addition to other forms of “cruel and unusual punishment,” you may have a claim.

Correction Officer-Related Issues: Abuse, Issues Stemming From Under-staffing, Sexual Relationships
Prison correctional officers are paid to care for and protect the incarcerated. In recent years, budget cuts have led to a reduction in the necessary staff for prisons. With fewer staff, dangerous fights, altercations, and assaults have the potential to be more common because the ratio of inmates per correction officer has grown larger. Additionally, even if there are enough correction officers, because of poor training or otherwise, correction officer-led abuse to inmates is sadly common. If you or if someone you know has been beaten, abused, or mistreated by correction officers as a prison inmate, you may have a prison personal injury claim. The abuse can also be sexual-if you have been targeted, harassed, or sexually pursued by a correctional officer, you may have a claim. Harassment can also be in the form of disclosure of your confidential medical history. We are here to help you.
