Know your rights

Prisons have a duty to care towards all prisoners and should take reasonable measures to keep them safe during their sentence. The Prison has a responsibility to ensure the safety of prisoners, which includes protecting vulnerable inmates from being assaulted.

If you are a prisoner and the Prison fails in its duties to guard you against potential risks and you become injured, you are entitled to take legal action.

While you lose many of your rights when you enter prison, you maintain your entitlement to compensation for an injury if it wasn’t your fault.


For over 25 years, the expert team at Prison Injury Lawyers have helped prisoners claim compensation following an accident or injury in prison.

We deal with range of prison injury claims including:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Prison assault claims
  • Accidents at work while in prison
  • Accidents calls (bunk bed falls or injuries caused by faulty cell furniture or fittings)

We also have a dedicated team of medical negligence solicitors who can help you if you have received negligent medical or dental treatment from healthcare or the NHS while in prison.

Whether you’ve been misdiagnosed while in prison or suffered as a result of delayed medical treatment, Prison Injury Lawyers can help you.
