imac wont let me login because of a filevault problem

Hello - I am somewhat of a newbie here so please have patience.... I work at a small company and we have an imac with OS X 10.3 installed on it. Recently someone pulled the plug on the machine because it was completely unresponsive - they were able to restart and login... fast forward to the next day they can't login now because of a FileVault image is damaged. Now another fold in this issue is that whoever set the mac up initially didn't create multiple accounts so I only have my one account to log in to. I tried booting in safe boot as well but wasn't successful - any help will be greatly appreciated.

Being that FileVault is. Method of encryption, you may be out of luck in regard to reloading the image, thus, you may have to install OS X from scratch.
