A bogus charge of forgery was concocted by an investigator in Bibb County and he came to Upson County to serve the warrant. I have a current EEOC case for reverse discrimination as a white teacher in all black school. I reported them for non compl...
This sounds like an interesting situation. You should speak to a lawyer versed in both employment law (you may have a separate retaliation claim that will require that you amend your EEOC charge) and civil rights. "Bogus" charge - why is it bogus?
The standard for a 4th Amendment Malicious Prosecution claim is arguable probable cause, i.e. would reasonable officers under the same circumstances know that there was no PC for the warrant? Typically, that standard is met if the officer lies in the warrant application by either including information that isn't true or omitting information that would obviously mean there was no basis to issue a warrant.
By reporting non-compliance of SPED students - I assume you mean that they were not complying with IDEA in how they were servicing SPED students - you may also have a claim under Georgia's Whistleblower Statute.
I strongly encourage you to seek the advice of an attorney without delay. I'm happy to answer any other questions you might have.See question

Were you at work when the latest injury occurred? Have you filed a workers' Compensation claim? I ask because this is one of those unusual situations where the workers compensation insurance company would have an interest in proving that your prior injury was a contributing cause here.
It sounds to me like you have a complex case. I would ask your lawyer to schedule a telephone discussion with your doctor. It will cost him/her a little money, but it is better for him to have the discussion about your concerns than to have you ask - your request will appear in the medical record and that would not look good. Your lawyer wouldn't ask him either but he could have the Doctor offer an opinion as to whether your ongoing symptoms are causally related to the accident.

You should speak to an attorney who specializes in medical malpractices cases in Georgia. Unfortunately, Tort Reform legislation passed by the republican-controlled General Assembly imposed a higher burden of proof against physicians in the Emergency Room. A plaintiff is now required to prove their case by "clear and convincing evidence" rather than the "preponderance of the evidence" standard applicable in virtually all civil law suits.. As a result, lawyers rarely take cases against ER doctors and hospitals unless the damages are catastrophic and the negligence is absolutely crystal clear.See question

You should immediately set up a consultation with an attorney who specializes in handling false arrest cases against government entities and/or private probation companies. Depending upon the length of time you were in custody and whether you have a prior criminal history, these cases can be quite valuable.
Personal injury attorneys who are not familiar with this area of the law will often undervalue these claims. I encourage you to review the prior verdicts/settlement pages of the lawyers you consult with to be sure that they've handled this sort of case.See question

You should consult with a local attorney who has specific experience handling cases against local governments. Claims against municipalities, counties or the State are all subject to different time limitations, among other things.
Are you sure you were on a county road, as opposed to a state road? Sometimes counties will turn over responsibility for maintaining county roadways to the State.

It may be worth getting your medical records together and setting up a consultation with a local attorney. However, blood clots are a known risk of most medical procedure to the lower extremities. The fact that you developed blood clots does not, in and of itself, suggest that any medical practitioner involved in your care breached the applicable standard of care. Prescribing Coumidin, or another blood thinner, is absolutely necessary and consistent with the standard of care if you've developed blood clots.
If your prognosis does not improve, I would encourage you to get your medical records and go see a lawyer.See question
I received a call from the hospital, a Practitioner Assistant telling me to remove a device that was attached to my leg by a doctor, in result, I lost a lot of blood and had to be rush to the er.
You should talk to an Atlanta attorney who specializes in medical malpractice cases. It would be helpful to know what the underlying surgery or condition was that resulted in the Doctor's decision to use the device, what the device was and who the physician assistant worked for (Dr. practice, I assume).
As a prior respondent pointed out, the extent of the damages will likely determine whether a lawyer would be interested in the case even if the lawyer decides that the PA may have breached the standard of care. Medical malpractice cases are very expensive and time consuming. Many lawyers will not get involved unless the patient suffered catastrophic injuries or death.See question
