Oklahoma Mother Files $10 Million Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Prison
The mother of a man from Tecumseh, Oklahoma has filed a $10 million lawsuit against a prison corporation and the state in the death of her son.
Her son and his wife were vacationing in New Mexico when they were killed by two prisoners who had escaped from an Arizona prison. The lawsuit was filed against the company operating the private prison, Management & Training Corporation of Delaware, and claims the state failed to maintain the inmates and properly train the employees.
Losing a loved due to someone else’s negligence can be difficult to understand. When you are grieving, hurt and worried about the future, it is uncomfortable to talk about insurance claims, wrongful death settlements, and cash awards; however, if someone caused your loved one’s death you should seek the compensation you deserve. At Munley, Munley & Cartwright we represent individuals and families that have lost a loved one or been seriously injured due to the negligence of another.
An alarm sounded on July 30 when the two men cut through one of the security fences, but the correction officers failed to investigate. The couple’s bodies were found on August 4 in their burned-out camper.
