If you assaulted a member of the hospital staff and then was forced to the ground, you will not be able to establish that the staff was negligent in their treatment and care of you. You should obtain a copy of your medical records and consult with a local attorney who is experienced in the handling of medical malpractice matters for an evaluation of your potential claim,
It depends. Clearly your assault of the nurse will muddy the water. However, the force applied to regain control of you had to be appropriate and not punitive. Gather your medical records and consult local counsel for further clarity.
