In Georgia, can a person sue a Georgia county or city for personal injuries as the result of improper medical care while in their jail?

Yes. Failure to provide proper medical care to a prisoner while he/she is in the custody of a Georgia city, a Georgia county, or the State of Georgia, can result in a personal injury lawsuit for damages against the responsible governmental entity that has custody of the prisoner. In such cases, the city, county, and state do not have immunity protecting them from a lawsuit.  Please contact Rumsey & Ramsey at (770) 394-9400 to discuss the facts of your case with an attorney.
