Hi!  I was wondering if anybody could give me insight about how to and what to pursue in a restitution hearing for being a victim of assault and battery.  The defendant plead "no contest" and terms were anger management, community service, probation, and restitution among others. 
Backdrop: (I am not even making this up)
My Older Sister's BF brought tequila (classy) to my younger sister's wedding and overdid it.
I helped him to the car because family made OS and BF leave the reception as BF was being aggressive with everyone and making a fool of himself and could not walk or stand up.  I am attacked on the way to the car.  I get him in a guillotine (type of headlock) and he BITES himself out of it World War Z style, and starts punching me on the ground (this is not made up).  He attacks 2 others who try to stop the beat down.  I have a bite mark scar on my chest!!! :o How do I pursue restitution, what can I be recompensed for, and how much can I get from him?  You could PM or reply to this thread.  Thanks in advance.

Suing your sisters boyfriend???

You were manhandling him, I don't see what your claim is. As my kindergarten teacher said, you started.

Older sister's bf attacked me while taking him to his car at my YOUNGER sister's wedding reception. I had to defend my self with a headlock but he bit himself out of it. I pressed charges and he plead no contest. A restitution hearing is set in March for monetary damages from loss of business to insurance and hospital costs, etc. I want to know what is legitimate that the courts would think acceptable. I want to take him for as much as I can as there is no cap (as opposed to small claims court cap of $7,500), but I don't want the judge to look at me like I'm in over my head.
