Thanks for your patience and enquiry.
I am sorry to hear what has happened. There are two options available to you. You may opt to make a complaint to the police station with respect to the action of the particular officer or you may bring a claim to seek compensation for this.
If you opt to bring a claim you would be required to act quickly as the law requires for claims to be brought within two years of the cause of action failing which they would be deemed to be statute barred. You must therefore take this into account in deciding whether to pursue this.
If it can be shown that the actions of the police has caused these mental health concerns then you may be able to successfully bring a claim. You would however have to be able to evidence this by way of medical reports.
Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
The best would simply to file a claim in the court on the basis that the police officer's actions were heavy handed and the effect it has had on you. i would recommend though that you seek the assistance of a solicitor to assist with filing the claim in the court.
You are welcome!
