I live in the Cul-de-sac area. My house is in the center, I got more space in the front house than any other houses. I paid extra from the beginning (customer built home, new home) on the land lot. My past neighbor always had her tenant park in front of my house so when I came home late(I owned biz) at 11pm it was hard that I had to park elsewhere. Now with a new neighbor, I had asked them not to park that space (even tho it is a street parking but it is a common sense and manner to not do that to your neighbor) but they refused. Can I sue them for money, mental anguish and elleviate my current injury?
(1) I have a brain injury due on a 3 collision accident 2 months ago. I have a hard time to turn my head on pulling my car from the driveway instead from the curb.(2)in this cul-de-sac area, one is happened right next to this new neighbor of mine, however, they never once parked their car in that neighbor's curb. It seems to me this new neighbor once again, target directly to me as I live by myself in this 5 bedroom home. I've documented/take pictures to show for the past 2 months they did not once dare to park on the other neighbors curbs but mine. Once I confronted them, they told me go head to call the Police. Can I sue them for racism toward disable person, hate crime (j/k), target single person or something? They saw/knew I had an accident but did not care. Since after the accident, my blood appears cant pump enuf to the brain fast. The blood sugar level is constantly low. I have fainting spells, dizziness, nauseau, pounding headache, blur vision, sweating if I got too excite or doing something on a fast speed (I can't even practice Piano anymore, the loud music hurts my brain badly, the ringing noise, heavy head feeling). What ground do I have?
I can feel your pain. Yes, suing is a possibility.
However, I wouldn't suggest suing just for the heck of it. The law generally does not impose a legal duty on your neighbor for the injuries for which you are claiming.
Nevertheless, if you first inform the new neighbor about the details of your brain injury and other serious problems, you would have a much stronger case for intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Unfortunately, the street is a public area, and equally available to everyone. You might be able to talk to a representative of the City, and have them designate the area in front of your house as a handicapped space, if you can qualify for a handicapped plate.
Otherwise, I would suggest that your best bet is to either try talking to them again, or just live with it. There are no laws against being stupid, mean, inconsiderate or nasty.

Hard to imagine any atty with a solid head on his or her shoulders taking on such a case. You have a 5br home and no driveway? You simply have no "right" to a public parking spot. Maybe you can pay the person not to park there?
