There is no "template" for what you want to do and, in fact, malicious prosecutions are extremely difficult to prove. You will need counsel, plain and simple, even to survive the initial rounds of motions to dismiss.
The complaining witness did not "lose." The prosecution lost. And the employer and insurance company did not bring the criminal case against you; that was the prosecutor's decision. An acquittal does not mean "innocent" and it will not suffice to prove that there was no basis for the criminal action. By itself the acquittal will not prove that the prosecution, the complaining witness, or any of the witnesses committed any unlawful act.
Think for a moment about all of the people who are acquitted in criminal court. Do you think that they then go on to win judgments to repay their expenses and sufferings for that experience. In almost all circumstances, the acquitted criminal defendant will not have a viable claim for restitution for the damages incurred by the necessity to defend against prosecution. But there is always the exceptional case...

My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
There is no template. Sit down with an attorney to see if you have any cause of action available.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
