    Fell during my incarceration and broke my rib

    While I was incarcerated, I fell from the top bunk because there are no safety rails. As a result of the fall, I broke one of my ribs. The only treatment the jail gave me was Tylenol. Do I have a case against the jail?

    You will have a tough time proving a case of negligence of falling from the top bunk of a bunk bed. Call 1-800-566-7404 to talk to a lawyer and see if you have a case to pursue.
