    You could try, but I doubt it.

    Follow up with the District Attorney in the jurisdiction of the original offense to check the status of any pending charges. Chances are if you haven't heard anything by now, either limited evidence existed for the initial filing, or the District Attorney was unable to make contact with you regarding your making an official written/audio statement, or completing a pre-testimony affidavit.

    Statute of Limitation for Filing a Civil Claim Against Perpetrator of an Assault – Civil Practice Law and Rules §215(3)(8)

    A victim may bring a civil proceeding to recover damages for assault within one year of the commission of the crime. Additionally, the law provides that a victim may sue the perpetrator within one year of the termination of the criminal action, whether it ended in conviction or acquittal.

    what are you expecting to happen.

    if it's too late. then what do you want us to do.

    get some scar fading cream like mederma.

    and you'll be fine.

    don't worry about it.
