Can I sue a jail for the wrongful death of an inmate?

You can sue the jail for the wrongful death of an inmate. The jail must take adequate steps to prevent death. Failing to do so means they are liable for damages. For example, if a person is put into detox and left for a few days that can be dangerous. If the person passes away than the jail did not take adequate steps to prevent harm (aka provide medical treatment). In that circumstance a personal injury lawyer or wrongful death lawyer could sue the jail for the wrongful death of an inmate.
