    i guess you now have heard the answer. don't be completely daunted. No one wants to be cruel its just that when someone does something wrong to someone else in order to bring a claim it has to have an effect that we refer to as an injury or damage in order to bring a suit. thats the law in new york. now it may be that had the hotel manager not done what he did your husband would have received help days earlier and that could be a potential type of damages. So what a lawyer would need to know...

    Probably even more difficult because in Buffalo there is so much snowfall its expected that public areas will be wet. Not fair but I wouldn't be surprised if thats what you're told by local lawyers. But don't give up. Give it a try.

    This is a complex question. Legal malpractice involves proof that the lawyer failed to do what a competent lawyer would have done and that because of that you suffered a loss.

    I agree. Really annoying but not worth most attorney's time. Unfair to you for sure. Consider small claims court unless you develop further problems. Good luck

    You already have some great answers. Police can be sued like everyone else. But, you will have to prove the accident was their fault just as you always have to. I f your saying you made a left in front of the cop car who was driving straight in the opposite direction that you were coming from before you turned, that is a tough case unless he was speeding, and even then its still difficult. That may be difficult, but it can be done. Also your injury has to rise to a threshold in New York. The...

    Please accept my humble sympathies. I think the terms you are using are ones your familiar with but may not be what they meant. You must be guardian to act on her behalf in most circumstances. But testifying is something different. In either event you should only rely on what your lawyer tells you. There are things you can't do for her without proper court documents. There are things you can do though. For example you could be a witness and testify on her behalf to things you know. Go see...

    I guess the rest of the story got cut off. These type of incidents can be very infuriating when they happen to you. The legal issue for you is going to be whether that had probable cause if you were arrested. Probable cause can be complex. Basically they need a good reason to believe you had done something illegal. Call a lawyer if you were arrested. Someone experienced with civil rights cases. Good luck.
