Kanye West left an innocent photog in crutches after a brutal assault at LAX last month -- when Kanye attempted to wrestle away the pap's camera -- so says the photog himself, and now he's filed a lawsuit against the rapper.

Daniel Ramos appeared with his lawyer Gloria Allred at a news conference Wednesday, where Gloria announced the lawsuit for assault, battery, and interference with Daniel's civil rights (in this case free speech).

Daniel -- who called himself a "filmmaker" -- says he spent two weeks on crutches after the attack, and has been walking with a cane for some time. He says he's still in pain.

Gloria argued the attack sets a dangerous precedent for celebrity-on-photog violence, especially now that various celebs are actually celebrating unprovoked attacks on photogs.

At one point, Gloria went after Kirstie Alley, Cher, and even Kylie Jenner for applauding Kanye's attack on Twitter.

Gloria says she's also asking the court to issue a restraining order against Kanye.

Ramos is suing for unspecified damages.

That guy Dany sucks, Allred sucks even harder... but they'll gonna get a huge settlement at of this, cause West acted like a giant tool there.

If you happen to be rich, start losing your sh*t over someone essentially asking you "why are you losing your sh*t, bro?", try to steal/break his stuff on camera, and even admitted on film you're about to give him a good case of a lawsuit... you're a tool.

This Glorified Media Whore needs to die already. I am so tired of seeing her mugshot in front of every camera for every nationwide lawsuit. The world would be a better place without Gloria Allred, Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton! They all just want to bring attention to themselves, and can't stand it if the spotlight is not on them at all times. They're all pieces of ****!

If he is a "Filmmaker" doesn't he need permits to be filming at the airport. So what he was doing was ILLEGAL... gloria alred needs to take a long walk off a short bridge

They've spent their time and energy to become famous. Made millions of dollars off the public and now resent that they are famous? Don't follow me, take pictures of me unless I want to tell you how to vote, what to eat, and how dangerous guns are. Complete tools, all of them.

This pap is an idiot. If all a celebrity needs to do is beat up on them to get a restraining order, then that benefits the celeb. The paps will be be forced to leave them alone and not chase after them because then they would be in violation of the restraining order themselves.

None of these ppl are good ppl. They def deserve everything they get or got. But I can't watch this video because it goes against my view on listening to liars. Just from the start she is staring at him as if she is trying to mentally will him not to f up the script.
