It's a loss from which most people don't recover: the death of a loved one. But when that death is caused by someone else's negligence, the loss is even harder. If not for their negligence, your loved one would still be alive.
An arrest that lead to suicide
That's the basis of a federal case recently tried in Scranton, PA. In 2009, Mumun Barbaros was arrested for a series of alleged criminal vandalism, and placed in Monroe County Correctional Facility. While there, he committed suicide. The family sued PrimeCare Medical , a company that provides medical care to the inmates. They alleged that the company did not adequately assess Mr. Barbaros's risk for suicide.
