Although many people don’t like it, prisoners can claim compensation when they are injured in accidents that were not their fault when behind bars. Just because you’ve committed a crime, it does not mean that you should be made to suffer as a result of the Prison Service’s negligence or recklessness. If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault while serving a jail sentence, you might well be able to make claim for a pay-out. If you’d like to find out exactly how much you might be able to win, simply use our personal injury claim calculator in Norfolk.
Prison injuries and our personal injury claim calculator in Norfolk
Perhaps you were injured when a fellow prisoner who was mopping the floor in your cell bock failed to put up warning signs flagging the fact that the floor was wet. If you were to end up slipping and cracking your head open on the concrete floor as a consequence, you might have a claim on your hands.
Maybe you were made ill after you contracted food poisoning from a meal you were served while behind bars. Although prison food is far from renowned for its high quality, you will have a right to be able to expect that it will not make you ill.
You might even have been hurt by faulty equipment while carrying out work duties. If you were working in the kitchen and the handle of a saucepan you were holding snapped off, causing piping hot sauce to spill over your bare arms, you might well have a decent claim for personal injury compensation. Defending on the nature and severity of your injury and the precise circumstances surrounding your accident, you may well be looking at a pay-out that could amount to several thousands of pounds.
