    I am not sure what type of surgery you had, but if you are in critical condition then you need to go back to the hospital. If you are in stable condition then consult with a New York personal injury in a confidential forum immediately. Good luck!

    Probably. In New York, Landlords are responsible for the criminal acts of 3rd parties in common areas but only it they had prior notice of a dangerous condition. It seems that they do know about the break-ins and lack of security.

    Yes, you may have an issue, but you will be fine if you bring a full copy of your Judgment of Divorce (if you were married) or Custody Order (if you were not married) to the airport for explanation. The trip cannot conflict with Father's visitation unless he is okay with rescheduling the visitation date(s).
