  1. The people you sue or the process you follow depend on your complaints. Even if all your complaint are valid, you may wish to focus on one at a time. Litigation or SS disability can take years and if your time and resources are divided you will be less likely to be sucessful.

  2. Depends. You posted no facts to work with. Hopefully you are aware the state, police, federal government enjoy immunity from many suits.

  3. I agree with my colleagues. Why not contact a local attorney who handles the various types of cases you believe you have for a free consult?
