More facts are needed to advise you but typically the at fault party is liable for the incident. That being said, fault is usually difficult to determine in fights such as the one you describe.

Under general principles of negligence, everyone has a duty to act reasonably and prudently under the circumstances. Sounds like both parties breached that duty, in which case the party seeking damages will have his award reduced by his portion of fault under principles of comparative negligence.

Answering questions does not create an attorney/client relationship. I only am your attorney if I have entered into a written contract, signed by me, wherein I expressly assent to be your attorney. Nothing I post should be construed as legal advice to be acted upon, it is merely a legal opinion.

Tough case. Check with a local injury lawyer and see if it is worth pursuing.
