If your question is, do you have a case, the answer is yes. You should file a police report and take pictures of your face, and keep all receipts and contact a personal injury attorney in your attorney.


Yes, retain a personal injury lawyer. The lady should have homeowner's insurance carrier to cover it.


Consult with a local personal injury attorney ASAP


I agree with my colleagues, you likely have a case against her homeowner's policy. You should contact a local attorney and be sure to get photographs of the scratches.

Although you did not ask a question, you should retain a personal injury attorney to represent you for your injuries. The lady's homeowners policy should cover the incident.
