    Exclamation Assaulted by my boss

    I got into a verbal arguement w/ my boss who is the vice president of the company and happens to be my step-uncle. The verbal argument led to him pushing someone out of the way numerous times that was holding him back. After he threw him out of the way he approached me while I was sitting in my chair and he grabbed my throat and started to choke me. The person that was trying to stop him is the president of the company. We got him off of me and I left the office and waited for the police. A police report was filed. where do i go from here? please help.

    Nowhere Police and DA will handle it now. Now I would suggest you file a complaint with your company as well. You could sue him but what are your damages?

    If you plan on sueing him or your employer then Doctors report will help

    Sue everyone.

    Let the court sort it out.

    However, from what you have posted, you do not have any compensable damages.

    A sore neck is worth nothing in court these days.

    However, go see a personal injury lawyer.

    If no Attorney is willing to take your case its because you have no case. Just file complaint with your companies HR and leave it at that

    Hopefully you will see justice following the police investigation and any criminal charges brought by the DA.....unless you are confusing justice with a personal monetary gain. If that's the case, since you have no damages, and probably no reasonable civil case against your employer, then, you'll likely not see the sort of "justice" you are looking for.
