  1. Law enforcement is largely immune from civil lawsuits when carrying out their duties, especially for negligence-type "not doing a good enough job" type of claim. However, you should consult a local personal injury attorney. You may run into statute of limitations issues, but you should get the consult. Use the "find a lawyer" tool on AVVO.

Any statements I have made are based upon the very limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business.
