Embattled Prison Health Care Leaves Ex-Inmate Injured, Unable To Collect Payout: Report
GLEN BURNIE, MD - A former Anne Arundel County inmate who received insufficient medical treatment won his lawsuit, but The Baltimore Banner reported Tuesday that a bankruptcy claim is blocking him from collecting damages.
David Hall got into a fight at Glen Burnie's Ordnance Road Correctional Center in July 2016 and fractured his wrist. The Banner said a prison doctor gave Hall a bandage and told him the injury would self-heal, but a specialist later ruled that he should have had surgery.
The Banner said Hall sued the prison health care provider, Corizon Health, and won $3 million in damages. State law limited his payout to $770,000, however. Corizon filed for bankruptcy days after Hall won the case in February 2023, leaving his damages payment in limbo.
