Resolved Question:

Several days lTer I stared getting flashbacks from my time in the armed forces. Three different psychiatrists say the punch in the face breaking my teeth triggered my PTSD. We are now separated. Can I sue her for triggering my ptsd ?

Thank you for your question.
If you have the medical evidence and she has the means to pay damages, then there is no reason in principal why you can't sue her, notwithstanding that she is your wife.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
