You are very welcome.
have a case, but understand that you have to overcome the presumption that the doctors entered the correct record and heard you state that you were a risk to yourselves and/or others, and that your friend's affidavit was correct.
If so, you may have a case for false imprisonment
. The elements of false imprisonment are (1) the detention of another person, and (2) the unlawfulness of such detention Fagan v. Pittsburgh Terminal Coal Corporation, 299 Pa. 109, 149 A. 159 (1930).
In addition, the physicians may be liable for malpractice. However, I would not recommend going at this alone, of course. May I recommend the PA Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
