Sue your employer. They cannot fire you for defending yourself or getting angry when you are in severe trauma and danger / crises.1

File the claim and appeal if necessary. If you were assaulted, why didn't you file a police report? It would have really helped with any potential claim of wrongful discharge or negligence against your now former employer, and protected you and the employer from any potential claim from the customer. It would have also made the employer's evidence more accessible to you. And keep your witness information close and up to date. You may need them.1
