The inmates and detainees who reside in the jails, prisons, state hospitals and civil commitment centers throughout Florida are a litigious population. Defending claims of negligence and deliberate indifference against the healthcare providers and facility officials requires specific expertise which has long been an asset of the firm. The firm employs a successful and efficient defense strategy for litigating these types of claims in state and federal court through proficiency and intimate knowledge of the procedural prerequisites, applicable state and federal law and interplay of the Federal Prison Litigation Reform Act and the Civil Rights Act of 1871. This technical expertise together with the attorney’s ability to quickly develop a litigation plan when a serious incident takes place in a facility anywhere in Florida has resulted in the firm being engaged by private correctional healthcare companies, state hospitals, and Sheriff's departments throughout the state.


Defending correctional healthcare claims involves an understanding of the complexities and constraints of practicing medicine in a correctional setting and the significant medical issues unique to that patient population.
