Police responsibility

I hope you answer my question, and I appreciate your time.

My girlfriend was pulled over for speeding on a four lane bridge (two lanes in each direction)with no shoulder. As the police officer was walking from his car to her car, a drunken driver ran into the cop car which hit my girlfriend's car knocking her unconsicious. She has sustained injury in the back and neck resulting in loss of wages, loss of job, medical bills and an unbelieveable amount of pain and suffering. Since we have a drunk driver case my lawyer does not want to go after the police officer or the department for pulling her over on the bridge, but I really want to name them in the suit because he did not move her to a safe place and he also tore up the ticket as she was being put in the ambulance. Shouldn't we name the office and the department in the suit, and why or why not?

Thanks,

-M
