You should consult an attorney and explain the precise circumstances, and the attorney will outline what causes of actions you will have to sue.

Yes. Florida, like most states in the US does recognize a cause of action for Intentional Infliction of (Severe) Emotional Distress. Call a Sarasota Personal Injury lawyer who can assist you. If they take your case it will be on a percentage (contingency) fee. No recovery - no fees, if they make a settlement or recovery, they get a specific percentage of the recovery. Good luck. Do not delay.

One sues for emotionl distress as one wold for any other alleged harm. You file a complaint in the appropriate court and have the defendant(s) served with it.
The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship as this forum does not provide for a confidential communication.
