You can sue him for damages, plus a permanent restraining order.

Yes, you can sue him for an intentional tort. If you were to prevail, it cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. Also, if he is charged with a crime and convicted, the court would probably order restitution which also would not be discharged should he later file bankruptcy.

You can sue him for battery and for intentional infliction of emotional distress. You will need to show medical records for both, as well as a police report for the attack. You should find a lawyer to help with this, because the case will be difficult to pursue on your own.
