First, it is important that your loved one is utilizing the internal procedures at the jail or prison.  Inmates usually have a responsibility to file grievances and complaints before seeking help from the courts.  In order to ensure that your loved ones rights are protected, make sure that they are documenting their sick call requests and filing complaints and grievances when they are not receiving medical care.  Then, call us.  We will help you understand the available options for taking legal action.
