Get a lawyer and sue him. It's highly unlikely that anything else would be successful.
Lawyers are next to worthless for auto losses. If OP calls their insurance company they will explain their filing options. If OP does not want to use their own coverage, the insurance company will assist in filing a loss with whatever entity handles auto losses for the police department. You can't place neglegence on a stationary object.
#48 The issue isn't about the loss due to damage to OP's car, it's about the cop giving OP a ticket when OP clearly wasn't at fault in the described situation. What the cop did in this case was wrong and OP shouldn't have received a ticket. Yes, this should be something the OP fights. Document everything, get a lawyer and fight. And some lawyers will not ask for compensation until the case has been settled.
#48, this is more about the officer's abuse of power and wrongfully issuing OP a ticket than it is about the car. He was wrong and there should be action taken against him. OP's insurance will take care of the damaged car and the insurance company will pursue the officer for reimbursement.
okay but realtalk why does it seem like the police are always on some type of goddamn power trip like bruh. we get it, you're kinda important. please stop being a douchebag and get back to your fucking job
Take pictures and call a news station. Chances are EVERYONE impedes him, and this would force his department to evaluate him.
It is wicked simple, if like in the US, bring it to traffic court. It has nothing to do with suing, but if you pay the ticket it is an immediate guilty and cannot be reversed. The judge should be fair and drop the ticket
