My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania
My Questions: I hope I have this in the right thread. Sorry nothing seems to match what I need. =(
I have a family member in jail and he has a broken arm (received 2 surgeries for this injury and is at risk for losing mobility if not given proper treatment.)
Is it the attorney's responsibility to make arrangements for inmate to receive therapy and doctor appointments? If jail or attorney refused to get him treatment what can I do? If lack of medical treatment results in loss of mobility will we have a case against jail/attorney? Treatments that he requires are above what the jail can provide.
I also have a question about workers comp as it relates to this same injury. This injury is workers comp related. Can they cancel W/C because he is in jail? Dr will not release him for work regardless of his location. We have asked the attorney about all these questions and he never answers them. Please help.
I would appreciate any help that can be given. Thank you in advance!
