KevK, Believe it or not Illinois has some good laws to protect you if you are defending yourself against someone committing a forcible felony.

In Public Act 093-0832 it says "In no case shall any act involving the use of force justified under this section give rise to any claim or liability brought by or onbehold of any person acting within the definition of "agressor of this Article, or the estate, spouse, or other family member of such a person, against the person or estate of the person using such justified force, unless the use of force involves willful or wanton misconduct.

In other words you can't be sued by a perp for defending yourself.
