This book is intended to give practitioners an idea as to how the prison system works, and how to build a personal injury claim in circumstances that can be very challenging indeed. It is concerned mainly with injury claims brought by both prisoners and the people who work in prisons.

Claims by prisoners frequently rely on different causes of action, such as negligence, trespass to the person, misfeasance in public office and human rights.

As a number of reports and court judgments on the prison system have shown, prisons can be highly secretive places, cut off from the outside world, where abuse and corruption can flourish unchecked. It is generally accepted by the courts that prisoners are highly vulnerable people, who require a high degree of protection.
