The Court of Protection in Manchester heard Mr Briggs was in a 'minimally conscious state' following a car crash in July 2015.
He was struck by new driver Chelsea Rowe, 26, on a flyover in Birkenhead after she mistakenly drove on the wrong side of the road.
The father of one, who is being treated at the Walton Centre in Liverpool, suffered a bleed on the brain, five fractures in his spine, bruising to internal organs and several other severe injuries in the collision.
The court heard medical experts predicted that even in a best case scenario, Pc Briggs would remain severely physically disabled.
Mrs Briggs said: 'I think he would see it as torture, just as hell, that everything he believes in and he lives for would just be taken away from him.
'He would be living for no reason.'
She added: 'The most important thing to him is independence. He is the kind of person who lives for the moment. He was a loving dad to his daughter, he would want to bring his daughter up.'
But Conrad Hallin, representing the Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust and the Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group, said doctors had noticed some signs of improvement in his condition.
The life expectancy of people in his condition is estimated to be nine to 10 years.
