Medical Care After Assault

I was violently attacked by someone claiming to work for a food delivery service early Sunday morning. 

I'm badly hurt, am suffering from 2 fractured bones in my face & lost 3 teeth in the attack. 

For more details about this horrible experience you can see my interview here: 

ABC7 Interview
KTVU Interview 

I work as a server & got off of work late on Saturday night. I went to Denny's down the street from my restaurant for a late night dinner. 

I was sitting in Denny's lobby, waiting for my to-go order & a person who said they work for "doordash" (bearing in mind this may not have been his real employer, this person was being erratic) came in and was being really loud, rude and yelling at the people working there because his to-go order wasn't ready. 

I know how the people working in food service feel, especially in the middle of a late night rush on a Saturday night/Sunday morning. 

I looked at the delivery driver and said something like: "Try to have some patience, it's really busy in here". This guy was NOT ok with my saying that, but I'm not okay with people who are working the midnight shift being verbally abused by people so I said it. I was hoping to give this guy some perspective & at the very least hoped he would stop berating these people. 

At that point, the guy started yelling at me. 

Yelled at the Denny's staff some more, then when another customer wouldn't move for him, he shoved him. 

The supposed delivery driver and the guy he shoved went outside & I knew there's no way the guy that got shoved should be out there alone. I stepped outside hoping to mediate the situation before it escalated. 

Within seconds of walking outside the "delivery driver" sucker punched me.

He knocked out 3 of my teeth, split my lip, cracked another tooth and fractured 2 bones, 1 in my mouth and one in my nose. I am in an incredible amount of pain, am un-insured and am unable to go to work because of everything I mentioned above. 

At the very least I am going to need 3 teeth replaced & don't know how I am going to be able to afford this expensive treatment. 

I am humbly asking for any support anyone reading this can give me so that I can get my teeth fixed once my fractures are done healing. I want to get back to my serving job as soon as possible, but don't know how that would work with 3 missing front teeth. 

Thank you for taking the time to read about what I'm going through & for considering helping me out. It means a lot.
