I am so sorry to read about this.

You would need an Attorney who handle prison rights issues to assist you with the case. The jail was to supposed ensure your safety and it failed. The State should be responsible for your medical bills and for your damages. A prison rights Attorney should know how to file a claim. If you have an Attorney now, you should let the Attorney know what happened and if the Attorney cannot help you then the Attorney should refer you to another Attorney.

You may also contact National Lawyers Guild. They are specialists in jailhouse law.

Goodluck with your case,
