Exclamation My Shrimp was jumped!

I have a 12 gallon nano cube tank and have had it for 8 months. In the tank a have a blue blenny, a yellow watchman goby, a pair of saddleback clownfish. I also had a Fire Shrimp but it died. So i got another one and it has been fine for 3 months. Yesterday he shed his skeleton and when i went in to clean out his old skeleton i noticed him lying on his back. He had about 3 broken legs and couldnt stand up. I know the shrimp loves the watchman goby, but do you think the clownfish hurt him? I have already put him in a bowl and gotten him medicine from the store, but do you think he'll survive? all fish are tank bred.
