Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for using the forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
I am very sorry to learn of this situation.
There are two advocacy organizations that may be of assistance in getting your son some help with his medical care:
In addition to those sites (advocacy sites), your son likely has a strong civil litigation claim against the State of Florida. (This website is a law firm's (our forum is not associated with this law firm, but it gives a very good summary of what different inmate claims are - many of which appear to apply to your son's conditions): http://www.injuryclaimcoach.com/prison-inmate-injury.html).
You can find local personal injury attorneys (make sure to find attorneys that specialize in litigating in federal court and have some experience with what we call 42 USC 1983 claims (federal tort claims), as your son's case is likely to have to be heard in federal court), using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
