So I recently got into a fight with my friend. The fight was totally agreed upon by both persons. We also we wearing boxing gloves. It was in the middle of the street at 1 am 12 people, every single one hyping it up. So, the fight starts and he lands the first few blows then I swing land a good one. He then rushes me and I throw a haymaker to the face. After that he got knocked out for 30 seconds, but when he woke up couldn't walk for a few minutes. Today I found out that he bruised his brain and I gave him a concussion. Could the family press charges even though he also agreed to fight me ?

Probably.
Did you have some sort of signed waiver absolving you of any responsibility for injury?

Just because they can doesn't mean they will, however.

I'm assuming you're both underage, yes? Yeah, the family has a great case against you. Their lawyer is gonna get an easy paycheck if they decide to press.

Yes, at least in American courts. Assuming neither one of you signed any papers agreeing to not hold the other liable for the fight. Agreeing to something does not make it legal.

Maybe a bit of prison.. 6 months for battery I think. I'm sure you will have a few pals in prison to help you pass the time.

Concussions can cause permanent damage as well.

That's what a concussion is. It happens when the brain hits the skill.

If you go to prison, brag about it, then maybe the other prisoners will leave you alone.

Hey come on. I know you're teasing, but the guy's really looking for advice and info, and you might be kind of freaking him out right now.

Ok. I kind of thought maybe he was just trying to brag. That's my bad. I was only kidding, probably the parents of the kid will want the cost of the medical bills at worst. That depends on the parents though. You should probably go visit the kid and make nice.

Also if you or your friends have any video of you two agreeing to the fight, you should probably save it.
