I had a seizure in prison because medical wasn’t medicating and they knew that I had seizures and even verified it thru my pharmacy and a week and a half later I had a seizure and I told the officer 3 time in the middle of the night that I needed medical attention and he would not call medical and in the morning I was found on the floor by the nurse unresponsive and I also had a fall off the the top bunk when I’m not even supposed to be on the top and in the middle of the night rolled off and hurt my back
A: You may potentially have a case, you should speak to a personal injury lawyer and/or a civil rights attorney to discuss the details of your specific fact pattern to see if it is viable to pursue. Best of luck.
