It is possible your husband has a valid personal injury claim. When did this happen, exactly how long ago... as strict time limits apply to PI claims... so the first point to consider is whether the claim is barred due to the statute of limitations? I await your response regarding the date of the incident, before proceeding further. There are many no-win/no fee PI lawyers, who would be able to represent your husband if they believe he has a valid claim. Kind regards, James
