Can I sue someone if I was assaulted while outside of a bar? 3 Answers as of April 15, 2011

While I was there, I was assaulted by my ex girlfriends new boyfriend and his friends. Several men beat me after they pulled me out of the club in Boston, and then when I tried to escape, got dragged out of my car. I had several broken ribs, swelling, and now have scars on my face. No one tried to help me until the EMTs arrived. Police were also called onto the scene.
