Inmates don’t surrender their constitutional and civil rights just because they have been convicted of a crime. Correctional personnel ignore, and sometimes are the direct cause of, inmates’ injuries, illnesses, and invasions of their persons or privacy. However, prisoners face steep challenges getting attention or relief when their civil rights are violated behind bars.
At Patterson Harkavy, our attorneys understand prisoners’ rights, and the challenges that come with pursuing a civil lawsuit while or after serving a criminal sentence. We have represented incarcerated plaintiffs for decades, helping them protect their rights and making systemic changes in the way North Carolina’s inmates are treated. We can assist with denial of medical treatment, improper supervision, excessive punishments, and personal injuries committed within an institutional setting.
If you have been the victim of jail or prison misconduct you have the right to have your story heard, and receive compensation for harm done by the correctional officers responsible for your wellbeing. At Patterson Harkavy, our experienced civil rights attorneys are committed to securing the relief you deserve for jail and prison misconduct. With offices in Chapel Hill and Greensboro, North Carolina, we represent clients statewide.
