Corrective Services Neglect Delays Cancer Diagnosis of Inmate

Cancer diagnosis delayed by prison officers’ failure to take him to medical attention

While our client, Ken* was in custody, he realised that he had a tumour. Although Justice Health arranged for him to see a doctor, Corrective Services neglected to transport him to the appointments.

Our client went without medical attention for more than a year, until officers eventually took him to a hospital where he was diagnosed with cancer.

Suing Corrective Services for Psychiatric Injury

As a result, Ken started a civil claim against corrective Services, for psychological harm caused by the delayed treatment.We represent Ken* and successfully settle this matter with a favourable outcome.
