Most AVVO Personal injury attorneys will offer you a free consultation regarding this matter. I suggest you contact a few of them and discuss this matter with them so that they can give you specific directions on what you should do from this point on. One thing I can suggest to you is if there are any visible marks or black and blue Areas on your body is to take photographs of them NOW before they disappear. This will be evidence that you can use in a civil lawsuit against this person.
I will be happy to speak with you at no cost with a FREE phone consultation if you have a San Diego or California matter. Please call my office at 619-238-1905 or visit my website at www.lawofficeofwilliamdaley.com
