This is not something you can do on your own. The only way you are going to get answers is to retain an attorney who can bring this claim on your behalf.

If you feel this is the "best" answer or is "helpful," please indicate. Since I am limited to the information you provide, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the answer. You should seek the advise of an attorney who can explore all aspects of your question. This communication does not form an attorney client relationship.
