  7. When I evaluate a personal injury case I work it backwards to forward. In other words, I always start with "what are your injuries?" If there are none or minimal then even if the other person is liable there is no case because you are not "damaged," i.e. hurt. You are not telling us your husband's injuries - broken bones? Shattered face? Dislocated joints? Surgery? Hospital stay? Loss of sight or hearing? Those injuries would have the elements of a viable personal injury case. If he had a strain or sprain that he put ice on that would not have the elements of a viable personal injury case. So let us know what the injuries are and we can evaluate the case further.
