Grandma fell at the local Goodwill store when she tripped on merchandise left on the floor. She is currently in the hospital and will require surgery scheduled for tomorrow. She has medical but dont know how much of the medical expenses they will cover.
You need to contact a good personal injury attorney - many, like myself handle trip & fall accidents & offer free initial consultations. She may well have a good case, but need to know much more facts. Hope all goes well with her surgery!!!! If there is a good case all her reasonable medical charges past & future will be recovered, plus additional money for all her pain & suffering.
You need to get a copy of the incident report and any other documentation, such as your grandmother’s medical records, and have them reviewed by an attorney who is experienced in such claims and can represent your grandmother’s interests. I have personally dealt with other California claims of a similar nature. I have worked personally on numerous injury cases and it is important for you to know that time is of the essence when bringing an action forward. Having proper representation can protect your cause of action. Best of luck to you.
