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 your attacker has any assets (money or property) your next step, especially given your brain injury, is you need to hire a personal injury attorney immediately. You have right to sue him for the attack and not only recover all of your medical expenses, but also your pain and suffering, payment for loss of income AND punitive damages of up to triple (or maybe more) that total judgment amount for his intentional act against you.
You have a right to monetary recovery against him, so you need to get yourself a local attorney immediately to represent you and file suit against him and do not wait for the criminal case to finish, go and file your suit now because under Colorado law you only have 2 years from date of the attack to file suit.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
