JACustomer, I am so sorry to hear this happened.

This type of injury is most often life threatening to a hamster. It's very possible that has either suffered a severe soft tissue injury or has a broken spine. She desperately needs to see a vet. Do you need help finding an ER location that can see her? If so, please post back your city, state and zip code and I'll work on finding someone who can help your little girl.
