    Badly hurt, he canít go to school today.

    Badly hurt, he cant go to school today.

    I think
    badly hurt comes from because he was badly hurt not because he is badly hurt. What do you say?
    Thanks.

    Re: Badly hurt, he canít go to school today.

    You could read it either way. With either meaning, it's a fairly formal sentence. Few of us would say or write it.
