The Little Rock police department is investigating for felony charges. The whole incident was on video. I’m wanting to sue them but I have never had to search for a lawyer before much less understanding all the areas of practice.
You should consult an attorney with experience in intentional torts. If this security guard truly did attack you unprovoked, and the whole incident is on video, you could have a strong case against both the security guard and the hospital for any injuries you sustained in the attack.
An out of state attorney who is female and unwilling to represent me. To expand on this misunderstood sentence, she tries to communicate with me in an akward sense, she is being charged. This is due to her not communicating with me only. It is impossibly horrible to expect 'good standing'... Read more »

What can our family do legally? The person said they didn't see him on his loud Harley, yet hit him on the passenger front side while making a left turn. This was in Arkansas where he lived with his wife and son.
I would recommend you contact an Arkansas injury lawyer to discuss whether anything can be done in a civil claim. Regarding whether there is criminal liability for what occurred, I would need more information and also direct you to the prosecuting attorney in the County where the wreck occurred.
I am sorry to hear about what occurred. You need to discuss this situation with an Arkansas dog bite lawyer. Liability for what occurred may depend on certain facts that need to be known. I hope she is recovering well.
People that do that type of thing tend to be poor or not have assets. Short answer is you can sue him,but that won't get you anything but a piece of paper.

I retained a lawyer right away. I received treatments for whiplash and PTSD for 6 months. It has been almost 2 years since the accident that the other party's insurance agreed their client was at fault. I have done a lot of the footwork in gathering up the bills, etc. The young secretary/... Read more »
First, set up an appointment for a face to face with him. Part of the problem may be that you finished treatment, the insurance is playing a waiting game--they figure it's a "closed end" case--you recovered, it's 6 months, they can see if he'll fold. Meet with him now. Find...Read more »
