Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
There are a number of tort causes of action you could allege against this individual, assuming you have suffered severe emotional distress which would be expected after a traumatic incident like this. The problem is that any judgment you obtain will probably never be paid, since this person probably has no assets (wealthy people tend not to commit armed robbery) and is going to be in jail for some time with no source of income. This means it won't be possible to find an attorney wiling to assist you on a contingency fee basis, which in turn means you'll have to pay hourly and front all court costs. So, you'll wind up spending 5k or more to obtain what will presumably be a judgment by default against this individual only to be unable to collect on it. In other words, litigation would very likely put you in debt, not put money in your pocket.
If you were on the clock for your employer at the time of this incident and have suffered PTSD or other emotional effects requiring medical treatment or rendering you disabled, you can likely file a workers compensation claim through your employer's workers compensation insurance since this would be considered a work-related injury. But if you were not working for your employer at the time this happened, then this of course is not an option.
The damage to your car should be paid by your car insurance. Your deductible should be covered through the restitution order imposed by the court in the criminal sentencing of this individual. But again, you have a problem regarding collection, since it's unlikely this person has any money to pay.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes moving forward.
