Harvey, LA asked in Criminal Law, Libel & Slander and Personal Injury for Louisiana

Q: Should I contact a criminal attorney on simple assault by 3 family members who verbally and physically attacked me?

I was falsely accused of murder by euthanaztion (father) against husband: Kevin, Me & Hospice Nurse w/ threats for bodily injury to Hospice Nurse made by phone/texts (report filed to her supervisor). Then I was body slammed onto concrete steps rolled off onto concrete ground. Witnessed by 3 family members, but only one was questioned. Verification was made by call to hospice director it was confirmed. I wasn't questioned by initial cop on scene nor asked if I needed medical care for my physical injuries. I suffer daily ptsd - I am in constant fear of promised future attacks made by them. I have received multiple Contusions/ bruises was seen by Emergency Room & Urgent Care (pics and statement report & charges filed by a second cop few hours later). I suffer psychological effects from the trauma received. A verbal promise was made to me while I was on the ground that it wasn't over they're going to inflict further attacks. Do I have a good case? Will I need an attorney?
