Can I take my ex-boyfriend to small claims? 3 Answers as of January 28, 2012

Can I take my ex-boyfriend to small claims and most likely win if he punched me in the face in 2009 and I have medical bills that are adding up? There is a police report. He pleaded not guilty and he did anger classes but he told me he wouldn't pay for my medical bills.

You can. However, it will be easier for you to merely speak with the prosecutor handling his case. As part of either a plea agreement or an eventual sentencing, the court will normally require that he pay restitution to you for those medical bills.
