Legal Question

Asked on: 4/09/13, 11:42 am

I rear ended an off duty cop in her civilian car, i was at fault. Though she was abusive, along with abusing her power by demanding things of me and was threatening to me(I felt unsafe and thought she may hit or attack me) I now an having nightmares and having daily emotional and psychological issues. Emotional distress in many ways along with not sleeping well(worse than prior) and also can not speak of it without breaking down emotionally. As I see her in my dreams/nightmares and can think of her without having fear and serious emotional and psychological problems. Is this grounds for a claim or lawsuit, I am getting into couseling as I need it really bad. There was no PI in the accident nor was it reportable though a report was still filled at th scene. The responding officer heard a little of her verbal abuse himself. Would you take this case? I know usually the emotional injury has to be in proportion to the physical injury, but because extenuating circumstances I think that should apply here, thus I am here. She used her police officer status and was demanding things while every other word was F this and f'n do that. I felt unsafe for this reason among others, now nightmares etc said above are happening. I know its more than a simple question, written poorly and kinda complicated but any advice would be great . Thanks
