he was thrown from the roof . We filed a personal injury suit with a big law firm .They have since dropped it due to"not enough medical evidence". What do we need. How can we prove what happened. He broke 7-8 ribs on one side and 3 on the other his right collarbone fractured his hip and his pelvic bone in 3 places .Was on life support for 4 days after thoratic surgery. The doctor said he was looking for an exit wound. All we could find was like 2 small hickey looking marks on his right foot. could this be the exit wound we are looking for. We have like 600,000 dollars in dr bills I can't pay and he can never work again . I need to know what to expect and what I can look for to help us out of this mess. Thank you.

  • You need to get your husband to a doctor(s)that will document his health issues. Is he having cognitive problems? If so has he had cognitive testing done? Next, you need to find an attorney that will take his case seriously. Yes, it's possible that those hickeys are exit wounds. Sometime exit wounds don't exist. It doesn't take much electricity to throw the brain off. For the record, he wasn't electrocuted, if he was he would be deceased. It sounds like he was shocked. All the best. Questions?
