I think Yes -
Assault and property damage are recognized tort claims. I do not have all of the facts of course, but it sounds as though you were physically harmed and there was no legal justification for it -
some lawyers may be reluctant to accept your case because of the potential limitation of damages - but you can always pursue a claim at your local magistrates office as well
I hope this help

You should make sure you receive medical treatment for your injuries. Yes, you should consult with a personal injury attorney. Part of the problem will likely be collecting any judgment you get because it is highly unlikely that there is any liability insurance policy that covers his behavior.
You need to contact a lawyer. You can file a claim for assault in civil court and claim compensatory and punitive damages. Take pictures of everything and collect the names of any witnesses. I would also report it to the police.

Interesting and horrible scenario. I pray you heal both physically and mentally. There are some interesting forces converging here. The person who beat you, do they have any means to satisfy a potential judgment, as yes, you can sue them? Secondly, what kind of get together was this, and did the person or entity having it know something like this was possible? You should get a free consult with a personal injury attorney, give them everything you know about the assailant and the events, and listen long and hard to their suggestions.
