I'm not sure what you're really asking here, but given the board you chose to post on ....  Someone falling on you doesn't mean that a court would hold them liable for an injury you sustained because they did so.  I presume you aren't a bouncer, for instance, and were just some third party who decided to step in (at your own risk).

I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics.  If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable.  Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.  :)

Did someone directly attack you, or did you make a voluntary choice to involve yourself in an altercation that otherwise did not involve you?
