You may want to speak with a PI attorney. It is almost five years ago, though.
I agree the criminal matter is likely in the hands of the prosecutor.
Your question is vague. If you asking whether you can sue someone for intentionally injuring you, then yes. If you are asking whether you can take money or something of value in exchange for not coopearting with the state's attorney in a criminal prosecution, then No, that's a crime in and of itself. Talk to the state's attorney about restitution for your inujry-related expenses and to a personal injury lawyer about a possible civil suit. Do not be afarid to tell the state's how you feel about your role in prosecuting the case. www.galivanlaw.net
