    It is not true that you must be able to prove a broken bone to be successful in a claim for injuries suffered in a fall. You must be able to prove an injury, though, and most lawyers will not take a case if they don't think the injury is bad enough to make them enough money to justify the 1) work they have to put into the case, and 2) risk of losing the money they invest in developing the case. Fall cases are sometimes hard to win, but each case depends on its individual facts. The vast majority of fall cases we've handled in our office do not involve broken bones. I suggest you keep talking to lawyers until you are satisfied that the advice you are getting is correct, even if it's not what you want to hear.
