Q: SCAM ARTIST IS SUEING ME SAYING THAT HE FELL ON MY PROPERTY. LIES!
I've Stressed out my mind over this cause i know its not true. He claims that my grass was SUPER HIGH and he couldn't see that the water METER wasn't covered. He also said that I told him it was MY FAULT(Lies). Last week I contacted the water Company about it and they sent Me a pic of my property on that day and that time and the grass was LOW and the meters lids were on!! I want to use THIS EVIDENCE to Countersue for Emotional pain they inflicted on me. How much can I sue for?
You can’t successfully countersue for emotional pain in this situation.
Mental anguish is difficult to quantify and is always subjective. The law limits the types of actions in which mental anguish is compensable to deter claims which cannot be objectively proven. Mental anguish caused by the litigation process is one of those situations where the law does not allow a legal recovery.
