Kennedy Watkins obtains confidential settlement in jail death case

Kennedy Watkins LLC recently obtained a confidential settlement for the family of an inmate who died in custody at a downstate county jail.  The case involved allegations of deliberate indifference by jail guards and private medical staff contracted by the jail.

The case was referred to Kennedy Watkins LLC by another Chicago personal injury law firm, who sought out and relied on Kennedy Watkins LLC’s experience in handling complex medical neglect and police misconduct cases.
