Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Personal Injury litigation attorney here to assist you.
I think you're better off informing the person that you will file civil suit for your damages and also criminal charges for the assault and battery.
This way, any money would appear to be a settlement of the civil claim - not the criminal one. The law is murky when you're dealing with payment for withholding prosecution - I would not recommend putting yourself in that situation.
If the guy refuses to pay, you can proceed to file criminal and civil charges.
