There are virtually no vets who can help you-( if you COULD find one that knows anything about T's I'd be shocked) your best bet is to do a lot more reading and educate yourself so that you know what to do in a situation like this. Mature males will wander and climb all the time looking for a female- they only have one thing on their minds! So you need to make sure the enclosure is as safe for him as you can make it. Substrate should be up to 1 legspan of the lid so he cannot be injured in a fall.(meaning if the T is 5", there should only be 5"of space between substrate and lid) If you still want to handle him-or any T- do it on a bed or some such soft piece of furniture so a fall doesn't injure him further or kill him. My advice is to leave him alone with fresh water as others said. Water is vital for a T who has been "bleeding". Good luck with him!
