Anytime you are injured by another person, the law provides guidelines in which you are entitled to being compensated for. For example: past medical bills, future medical bills, loss of earnings, pain and suffering etc... I suggest you speak with an attorney who can properly evaluate your specific situation and advise you on the correct course of action to take. Make sure that you are documenting everything related to the incident including dates, times, names of witnesses, bills etc...
