Hi and thank you for using JustAnswer!

Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
Okay. I understand what a shot feels like and I also understand what it feels like to step on a rusty nail.

How much money are you seeking from him?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
all we want to know is he liable? for anything
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
Yes, he is liable for your losses. You can submit a written demand to him to turn in to his insurance company.

If he refuses payment then you can sue him in small claims court for your damages and seek compensation that way.

It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs. It is my goal that you are satisfied. No expert can promise you an answer that is favorable to your circumstances. But I will do my very best to explain the legal principles that are related to the facts you’ve described so that you can better understand the “why” of things.
