    It does not appear there is either an injury or a damage in this case. If there were no injury, then for what reason would you file a lawsuit. If there were no damages, then what would you hope to recover. However; it sounds like an uncomfortable and unfortunate series of events.

    The answer to this question would depend on why your wife came to be injured. I would speak with an attorney in Florida to discuss the facts and allow them to make a proper determination of your wife's rights.

    In my view the liability would be on your friend and not you. I fail to see how you are liable for any damages caused by the actions of your friend. Was he driving your car at the time? If so then you should report this to your liability carrier as soon as possible.

    Consult a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. You very well may have a case but due to the specialization of medical malpractice in Texas it would best be left to a specialized attorney to determine whether you truly have a claim.
