I was hit in the head with a liquor bottle while walking though the club in AC. I wasn’t involved in the fight. I just happened to be hit when the fight started. I was bleeding everywhere, I filed a police report through hotel security and had to be escorted to the hospital. I needed to get staples in my head.
1) what kind of lawyer do I need?
2) can I even sue the club or the person who hit me?
You need to make an appointment with an experienced personal injury attorney. You may have a case, but the suit against the club could be expensive and may not be worth it depending on the extent of your injuries.
Your inquiry raises more questions than answers. The simple answer is that consulting with a qualified personal injury attorney would be a good idea. Depending upon the severity of your injury, you may have a viable claim under various theories; however, pursuing these claims can be quite expensive and may render the case economically unviable depending upon the severity of your injury. Keep in mind that you only have 2 years from the date of the incident by which to file a claim. Best of luck!
The response to any inquiry on this forum does not create an attorney-client relationship. No informal discussion group such as this can replace the comprehensive investigation that can be performed by a qualified attorney specializing in the area(s) of law raised by your legal question. Please keep in mind that every jurisdiction has statutes of limitation and other laws that will have the effect of time-barring a potential claim. These deadlines differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Consulting with an attorney quickly is the best way to protect yourself. Time is of the essence--Do not delay.
