Hello. For the past three years, I have been trying to collect on a promissory note from my ex-fiance. The amount constitutes the bulk of my life savings. He led me on with a number of lies to make me think repayment was right around the corner. When I pushed him harder, he'd threaten to file Chapter 7 and nullify the note. After finding out I was pregnant and catching him in a number of new lies, I flew to San Diego to confront him and get the truth about the money since I was going to be a mother. He paid for my ticket but left me stranded at the airport. I had to put my luggage on a bus and drive to Los Angeles. He met with me reluctantly the next day and gave me a new round of lies, stressing me further. I felt like I had a knot in my chest. I couldn't eat. I miscarried a week later.I have a lawyer and we are settling with him on the financial front. I am getting pennies on the dollar obviously. My question is really geared toward damages accruing from my miscarriage. I am aware that the hardest part would be linking the miscarriage to stress as there are many causes of a miscarriage in the first three months and the medical community cannot identify each cause at this point. Nevertheless, if an attorney thought that the extreme nature of the intentional stress that was put on me by this individual was "malicious" enough to contribute to a likely factor in my miscarriage, would I therefore have a case? I hope this makes sense.
