If a bedding company sold me a wrong mattress and literally spit in my face what court, civil part and how much can I win?

Asked 11 months ago - Brooklyn, NY

Despite of photos that I have sent them to prove and video I made of the mattress and physical and mental suffering, they decided not calling back. I am myself a disabled, cannot afford to loose like that. I am really in trouble right now. I haven' t slept normally for many month. What are my options? Cannot pay, but need a risky atterney!?

If you were lying in your bed helpless and you were taunted and spat upon, it might be significant, but probably not as much as you think. Consult an attorney on the personal injury aspect and file a complaint with the Attorney General's office, though they will tell you to hire a private attorney often.

    Answered . Depending on the value of the mattress you could probably choose between the Small Claims court and the Civil Court. I believe in the Small Claims you may get a lot of help as a pro-se litigant. The spitting, on the other hand cannot be answered that easily. When? Where? Who?
