Q:
Can a New York school or the police be held liable for my injuries if they fail to respond to my repeated complaints?

A:
Generally speaking, the answer is no. Not unless they specifically undertook a "special duty" to assure your personal protection. For additional information on this topic, please see "What Is A School's Duty To Protect The Safety Of Its Teachers? Not Much, Court Says," and "Why Municipal Liability Is Predicated On A "Special Duty."
