Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - thanks for the question.
I would certainly recommend that you consult an attorney to assist you because of the technical nature of filing lawsuits. BUT, there is no legal requirement that you hire an attorney. You can represent yourself if you like.
We're not allowed to take on clients through this site, however, I can recommend that you visit www.martindale.com and search for a personal injury attorney in your area. When you go to the site, click on "Find a Lawyer or Law Firm" and enter the relevant information and you'll be give a list of the best lawyers in that area of practice in your area.
It is POSSIBLE that you could sue the city IF the facts show that the city officials, law enforcement, etc. knew or should have known that the claims against you were unfounded.
