My son was in jail for approximately 25 days and contracted scabies. Can he sue the county? He was in Charles
County, MD jail
1 Answer from Attorneys
Your son would have to be able to establish that this was caused by something within the control of the jail system. Depending upon how serious the condition is and how quickly he recovers, it may not be worth it. There is also a pre-suit notice requirement. You should contact a personal injury attorney in your area to discuss this.
