if someone falsely accuses you of something that you have audio proof is NOT true and you had to run around looking for a lawyer to help you and your anxiety and heart problem worsened can you sue for personal injury for them putting you through unnecessary anguish?
You may be able to bring an action against the original complainant for Malicious Prosecution, but the proceeding that was initiated against you must first be terminated in your favor. Based upon the facts you have provided, personal injury would not be the appropriate lawsuit, nor would infliction of emotional distress.
For further information, you can contact a New York lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues. If you appreciate the time spent preparing this answer, kindly consider marking it BEST ANSWER or HELPFUL. Also, please be sure to read my disclaimer below. Good luck to you.
