I was hurt by the arresting officer and while in custady I fell down the stairs I told the bailiff I would have problems with the stairs I was not given the option to take the elevator
Possibly. Contact local personal injury counsel and review the facts and your injuries to see if litigation is warranted. Time frame for initiating action against municipality is short so do not delay.
I agree with attorney Wolf. Contact a personal injury attorney, and soon.
Advice given in this forum does not create an attorney - client relationship. No advice should be relied on without consulting with a local attorney.
There are strict timelines for lawsuits against municipalities so do not delay in getting your case evaluated. Establishing liability will be very fact intensive.
