If I was assaulted 3 years ago and the defendant signed a notarized contract to pay for injuries, when does it expire?
Question Details: Without provocation, an intoxicated person attacked me and broke my nose. I pressed charges and had a closed reduction so that I could breathe properly. He insisted I drop the charges and, in turn, he would be willing to sign a written contract to compensate for damages. It has been almost 3 years since he has sent a payment. I now live in another state. He has mocked me saying I have zero recourse. From what research I have done, I fear he is correct. I fear that I have no option to relieve this hospital debt except to pay for it myself and allow him to go free from responsibility. Can I sue? Is that my only way of enforcing the agreement
