A: If the employees of the Henderson jail neglected proper procedures, resulting in a near-death incident without proper medical attention, it's vital to consult with an attorney specializing in civil rights or personal injury. Potential legal violations might include neglect, violation of the Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, or breaches of established jail protocols. Provide detailed information during the consultation, such as any evidence of the incident and the specific procedures that were not followed.
