Do you think if she were to pay rent things will be better?
Anyway, it seems the situation in your household is toxic. Perhaps you all should consider some type of family counseling either with a therapist or a religious leader of some sort of that's what she responds to. Barring that, your only other option is to hire a lawyer and evict her, which seems to be a terrible option.See question

You are in control of resolving your case. So it is your decision. If you have residual problems which per your doctors will last for the rest of your life, then the offer is definitely low. However, sometimes a compromise is not only reasonable but necessary when there are problems with the case, such as liability or witness problems.
If you're in doubt about your lawyer's evaluation or advice get a second opinion by having another qualified lawyer to review your file.See question

If you believe he committed a crime go to your local police department and file a report. They have to investigate the complaint and if there is probable cause found they have to arrest him and submit through case to the DA for prosecution.
Asking the private attorneys to punish him criminally is not the proper or correct thing to do as it is the government's job.
As for the reason why you can't find a private lawyer to take your civil case, you can 'thank' your state legislators for making it so hard for these victims to find representation. Under MICRA it is too hard to make any money in these cases and it is very expensive to take these cases to trial.
If you offer to pay all costs involved in your case you will have better time finding a lawyer.
God luck,See question
