Standing Up For Victims Of Prisoner Abuse

If a person is injured or dies in jail or as a prison inmate, the government may be liable for damages. Prisoners are not stripped of their human rights or civil rights. If you or a loved one has experienced abuse in jail or prison in Georgia, you have options, and a knowledgeable civil rights lawyer can help you pursue them.

At Cromartie Law, we understand the dangers inmates and people taken into police custody face. We help victims, family members, loved ones and estates pursue monetary damages, holding cities, counties and prisons accountable for neglect and abuse that has led to injury or death.
