My question involves criminal law for the state of: MA
On July 3rd my mother let a man, who she met online 4 days prior, drive her truck. The man was driving erratically and pulling into strange dead end places, I was in the car following behind my family who the man was driving, and when he pulled over I took the oppertunity to run over to my mother's truck. I opened the door because I feared for my younger sister and brother's saftey. My younger symblings sprang from the truck with panic and releif and were very clearly terrified by the man. He is a 36 year old ex-boxer, over 6 feet tall, and fairly wel built. He then got out of the turck and began to take his shirt off to fight me, a 21 year old, 5'6" 125 pound girl. A few feet away my boyfriend is getting out of the backseat of the car I was riding in to try to get me away from the increasingly aggressive shirtless man who is now screaming and threatening me and my friends who hadn't exited the car or spoken to him. By this time the children had run to the car we came in for safety. The man begins to charge screaming that he is going to kill all of us. He throws me twice picking me up off of the ground and throwing me several feet across the rocky dirt. My glasses go flying and I can no longer see. He jumps several feet onto the hood of my friends car and begins to punch it. He cracks the windshield and dents the hood. He also reashes into the car and starts to try to pull the friend in the passanger seat out by the neck through the back seat that my boyfriend had left open. THe man fled with my mother and her truck shortly after, a few minutes before the police arrive. We filed some assault charges and one for property damages, but I don't feel satisfied for what he did to us.
I am covered in bruises, road rash, scratches, and it hurts to move. I tried to go to work today, 2 days after the attack, and was sent home because I was not fit to work. I have not gone to the hospital, but have been considering it. I don't think I have any magior injuries, but I would like to get some sort of compensation for all the pain that I am feeling, the terror and trauma not only inflicted on myself and my fiends, but my uneraged brother and sister. He hurt me, threatened all of our lives, and chased us down with the intent to kill us all, if there hadn't been a hidden house behind some trees where the people called the police he would have killed us. He was talking about all of the guns he owns prior to the attack.
Is there anything more we can do to make sure this man is punnished? Can we sue him for pain, suffering, and trauma? Or for anything else? I want this man to pay.
