DOC Negligent Supervision

If you or a family member have been injured due to the gross negligence of the Washington State Department of Corrections, we may be able to help you. These claims involve a party in DOC custody or under the supervision of a community corrections officer, or parole/probation officer, with various community conditions in effect by a court. If such an offender harms an individual, the DOC may be liable for failing to properly supervise the individual by failing to enforce the conditions and keep the community safe from such foreseeable harms. The standard to find DOC liable for these actions is gross negligence, not just negligence, but we are here to help you depending on your case facts.
