    Who is the lawyer? His conduct in retaining you may have been a crime and an ethical violation. The carrier for your car was required to pay bills and lost wages under the no-fault coverage. Whether you can get pain and suffering from the other driver's carrier depends if you can show "serious injury" as defined by the Insurance Law. Surgery alone is not serious injury but it could be. Contact me or another personal injury lawyer.

    If you are being detained in a police car that can be an arrest and the police can search you. More facts are needed about your situation. Hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
