A: I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Yes, you can sue almost anyone by simply filing a complaint and paying the filing fees. The question is whether you can win and what you might recover. Basically, does the potential reward outweigh time and expense. More details are necessary for such an evaluation. I suggest you discuss your rights and options with an experienced attorney. He or she can consider all the facts and potential recovery and advise accordingly. I wish you the best.
