Lawsuits Against the Washington State Department of Corrections
The Washington State Department of Corrections (WA DOC) has a duty to make sure that person who is about to be released is actually safe to release back into society. The department also has a duty supervise parolees as an unsupervised inmate on probation may cause injury to others.
When the failure of the Department of Corrections to properly monitor, supervise, or manage inmates, parolees or their own personnel and staff results in serious harm, injury or death to an individual (a member of the general public or an inmate) the department should be held accountable. Such cases may require the assistance of a personal injury attorney that has experience with lawsuits against the state and lawsuits against the WA Department of Corrections.
