Failure to Restrain Inmate While Visiting Jail Resulting in Significant Injury


Failure to Restrain Inmate While Visiting Jail Resulting in Significant Injury lawyer attorney sue lawsuit compensation incident
Why Are Inmates Able to Be Unrestrained at a Jail Visit?

Jails allow visitation to inmates and correctional detainees, if they have had good behavior that has earned them the right to have a visitor to the correctional facility. For example, if an inmate was on the rolls for a visitation from his or her family, but the inmate subsequently got into a fight or had other behavioral infractions before the visit, then the correctional facility may refuse the inmate to have the visitation, as a punishment for negative behavioral activity. Inmates are therefore allowed to be unrestrained at a jail visit with the family, because the detainee has on some level earned the right to see family as an unrestrained inmate. Studies have shown that inmates who are supported by their families do better upon release, and it may help to reduce recidivism if these inmates are allowed to see their loved ones on a regular basis during the duration of the detainee’s jail time sentence.

What Injuries Can Result from a Failure to Restrain an Inmate While Visiting a Jail?

You can be severely injured from an inmate who attacks you, while you were at a jail visiting a loved one who is behind bars. An unrestrained inmate may be angry, have violent tendencies, or have anger management issues that he or she wants to take it out onto you. When there are family visits to the jail, the guards and administration are supposed to monitor the inmates on visitation at every moment of the visitation. If the guards on duty to monitor the visitation room are lax in reviewing the behavior of the inmates, it can be a recipe for disaster. This means that there can be inmates who act aggressively towards other visitors, and whereby the visitors will become injured or seriously injured at the hands of an unrestrained inmate. The jail or correctional facility is responsible for the actions of the guards monitoring the inmates during visits, and the correctional facility is also fully responsible for allowing an inmate to harm or assault someone in the visitation room during a supervised visitation timeframe.

How Long Does It Take to Settle and to Get Paid on These Cases?

The length of time that it will take to settle and get paid on a case where you were personally injured, by someone who hit you while riding an electric unicycle will vary. It can take 3 months to up to 7 months to settle the case in complicated situations. That is because depending on your personal injuries, you may still be under a doctor’s care, and need additional healthcare management from your healthcare professional for your injuries.
