I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a dozen years of experience handling matters of this nature. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
Many people do not realize this, but you have the right to resist an unlawful arrest. Under the circumstances, you were merely fighting to preserve your own health. As such, you most assuredly have a civil cause of action of assault, battery, negligence, negligent infliction of emotional distress and other causes of action...including abuse under the color of law.
Before you file suit (you have one year to file from the date of the incident), you need to file a complaint against the officer with the police station for brutality. You will fill out some paperwork and it will go through their internal channels. You may also want to file a criminal assault charge against the officers in the court in which you are being prosecuted as well.
You also need to be exploring filing the civil suit. You definitely have a viable case for damages in view of the assault you received.
Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Please also rate my answer positively (THREE OR MORE STARS) on the ratings bar on your end so I can receive credit for my response from the site.
