I'm not sure if you are asking about the State pursuing a criminal action against him or if you are asking about pursuing a civil action against him? It doesn't really matter though; if you were violently and unlawfully attacked, then YES, seek justice.
This is not legal advice. This response is provided for general information only, as a public service. It is not to be relied upon as legal advice and does not create an attorney/client relationship; nor is it an attempt to create an attorney/client relationship. Consult with local counsel in your jurisdiction about the specifics of your case, which is the only way to gain true meaningful legal guidance and/or representation.
If you are the victim of a crime, you have a right to prosecute the wrongdoer. Contact the prosecutors office and ask to be kept informed and appear at all court dates and advise you want to prosecute. Tell the prosecutor you now know the names of all wrongdoers.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
By justice, do you mean compensation for your missed work and the hospital visits? YES!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
Talk to the victim advocate at the prosecutor's office. Your words alone are enough to convict. Ask the advocate about counseling, too.
