I currently have a personal injury lawsuit pending against the driver of the box truck who sideswiped me on the highway and admitted fault on scene.

I was approached by an officer while having a manic episode. I requested several times to see an EMT to no avail. 6 hours later I suffered a psychotic break and was finally brought to the hospital. Can I sue the police department for failure to get me treatment?
Theoretically but what are your damages? You were in police custody, so you didn’t lose any time from work as a result of the failure to more promptly receive medical care. Did you incur any medical expenses that you would have been able to avoid if they had sought medical assistance sooner?
This will be throughly detailed and I will mainly discuss the mistreatment/negligence I endured from DCF, former foster care parents, medical centers, etc. I’m going to state their full names, locations, etc. I just would like to make sure that I can’t be sued afterwards.
An attorney who works with authors in the publishing industry could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. As a general matter, there is no controlling whether someone would file a lawsuit if they claim that they have been libeled or slandered. Good luck

There is not much information in your question to assist an attorney in determining whether you have a case. I would say that negligence cases, including medical malpractice claims, generally have a 2 year statute of limitations. You indicate that the incident occurred in 2020. Without knowing...View More
I had a malpractice suit against the doctor when I was a minor. Judge reward money for me and because I was a minor my mom had it.

Your mother cannot withdraw money unless she gets an order approving the withdrawal from the Court. In another words, she would have to apply for permission to...View More
