Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If there is a police report, your wife has the right to pursue charges against the male offender, first of all. She can take the police report to the DA to make sure that charges are being pursued.
In addition to the criminal charges, the offender is liable to her for all of her medical bills and pain and suffering resulting from the assault. So she can pursue a civil suit against him for any medical costs, lost work and pain and suffering (which is about 3-4 times her total actual costs).
So, you need to direct her to go to a local attorney to represent her in a civil suit and tell her to make sure she contacts the DA so he knows she wants to pursue criminal charges against this individual.

Thank you for your reply.
She also needs to continue medical care as needed and consider filing the civil suit against the defendant for damages and seek a monetary award.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
