    Hi I'm really worried. My sister was arguing with my mum and went to attack her. I stood in front of my mum and told her not to dare as she was her mother. She then threw a phone at me and I didn't retaliate. She then closed her gate shouting and screaming and walked up her path. I stayed at the bottom of her path at the other side of the gate. She then continued to argue and ran down the path. Opened the gate and attacked me. It lasted about three seconds but she grabbed me and tried to hit me and I have grabbed her and punched her to which she then let go of me as it stunned her and I immediately let go and fell back. I have two witnesses who seen her attack me but she has a broken eye socket. What's going to happen to me o have pressed charged for her attacking me and she has but I don't have injuries whereas she does? Please help me I'm so scared I'm starting university in September and I'm so scared what is going to happen

    sounds like you might get off with self defence if the witnesses back you up and the police deem you used "reasonable" force

    Will t I'll be deemed as reasonable if she has a broken eye socket off the one punch. As soon as she let go which she did once she was stunned she released me and I released her immediately x

    She’s your sister ffs, why would she press charges? Plus as you said, it was self defense and accidental. It’s not like you actually wanted to harm her.

    exactly I told the police that I wouldn’t file a complaint as she is my sister... the problem is that the kids W even at the door when run all my when all of this happened so she is trying play the victim saying that I attacked her in front of her kids. When she ran at me and I have two witnesses to prove that she’s she ran at me I’m just scared that because she has a injury that she’s had to go and Get checked over and I have been checked over it’s going to look bad on me because She has a broken eye socket and I don’t have anything like that

    I honestly don't know, it probably depends on how hard she was attacking you.
