When I was unloading items from my shopping cart cashier was throwing floor mat in my cart and hit me in my eye. I felt down and I was bleeding he was nice to ask if I am ok, and I ask for ice he said they don't have it my mom gave me ice-cream from freezer. When I was about to pay cashier asked for ice-cream to scan so I can pay for it.Here I am bleeding in pain that was cause by 99 c cashier and he is asking me to pay for ice-cream that I was using as healer. I fill out report went to ER. Got bill for $4000 and 99 c store won't cover it. What can I do?
From your description of the accident it the store is liable for the negligence of their employee. You need to contact a California personal injury attorney immediately. I don't know when you accident happened so act quickly. Your medical bills are substantia. I don't know if your injuries caused any permanent damage. You should not have to pay for their negligence. I am sure numerous attorneys on Avvo, including myself, will be happy to discuss your accident without charging a consultation fee. Hope your injuries are not too severe. Best wishes
You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. The Guides can be accessed through my profile page on Avvo.com.
